SEATTLE – The No. 3 Washington men’s crew team dominated the Husky Open Regatta Saturday morning on the Montlake cute. The team won every one of the 10 races it competed in over the course of the day including two victories from the Huskies' top boat.

The Open kicked off bright and early with beautiful rowing weather on the Cut. The first race of the day the top freshmen crew took on the visiting freshmen from Brown. UW took the race with a boat length of open water and a finishing time of 5:41.27.  

The second freshmen race against the Oregon State Beavers also went to the Huskies (5:54.70) who came across the line with almost three full boat lengths of open water.

The competition really heated up in the men’s second varsity race. UW had two crews in the race, the 2V and the 3V, to take on the Bears. The 2V took an early lead in the heat and would cruise to the first place finish in 5:44.80.

Brown did its best to get out in front, but would never quite catch up to the first UW boat, though it looked like they would have the edge on the Husky 3V.  But the Huskies weren’t having it and as they came under the Montlake bridge they picked up their strokes and took the lead just before the finish edging out the Bears to take second place (5:46.2) just a half second in front of Brown (5:46.7).

The Varsity 8 race saw the clear UW dominance return with the Huskies winning in 5:37.8 with a whole boat length of open water at the finish. Brown tried to push to catch up in the last 500 meters, but would never quite get there finishing in 5:43.9.

After a break for the women’s races and the juniors races, the UW men were back out on the cut to take on OSU, Drexel and Western Washington.

The afternoon performances were just as impressive as  the morning ones even though the crews were on the second races of the day.

By the time the freshmen 8+ was back out on the water, the winds had picked up making everything a little bit harder for all of the crews out on the lake. But the Huskies were up for the challenge and finished with a huge open water lead over OSU and WWU with a final time of 6:00.7.

The 3V8+ (6:03.7) was up again next. After their amazing finish against Brown earlier in the day the crew left no doubt as to how dominate they were on the day finishing nearly a whole minute ahead of the WWU crew that took them on.

Next through the Cut was the V4+, which was in its first race of the day. Not to be left out of the fun, they pulled off an open water finish (6:37.7) over Western.

After the 4+s race, the program shifted back to 8+s with the 2V8+. This race was one of the closer races of the afternoon with the Drexel crews putting up a fight, but falling short. UW would once again come across the finish in first with a time of 5:59.2, 10 seconds in front of the Dragons who would come across in 6:09.0.

The 2F8+ and the 3F/Combo 8+ took to the cut next both up against the second freshmen crew from OSU. The 2F crossed first (6:08.2) followed just behind by the combo boat (6:12.9). The Beavers would once again fall to the Huskies with a time of 6:34.8.

The V8+s second crack at the field would not disappoint either. This time it would be the Beavers who put up the fight to try to end the Husky winning-streak, but to no avail. The Dawgs would finish 10 seconds in front of OSU at 5:51.7. The Beavers (6:01.4)would however beat out the visiting top line-up from Drexel (6:05.1) in a close race for second place.

Up next for the men will be another chance to row in front of a home crowd next weekend when they take on two conference foes, Stanford and Washington State. The races are currently scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. PT.
