The men's and women's varsity eight rowed to their seventh straight Windermere Cup victories in the best weather and biggest crowd Opening Day has seen in years.
With a race forced to be rescheduled to Friday the Huskies still manage to race well.
The Washington novice eight boat took first in a wire-to-wire finish in the Women's Collegiate Novice Grand Final on the second day of the San Diego Crew Classic on Mission Bay. The Huskies raced in a total of four grand finals on Sunday, earning two third-place finishes by the 2V8 and V4, and a fifith-place finish by the varsity eight.
Over the last three plus years, senior Madison Culp has transformed from a solid rower to a world class athlete. And she's not done yet.
Huskies top pairs boat and varsity eight both finish second, unofficially, at the Head of the American Regatta. Due to a glitch in a system, the official results are pending.
