Successful Weekend at WIRAs
For the first time in a very long time, the Varsity squad brought home some WIRA hardware. The Varsity 4+ placed second in their Saturday heat and moved into the Grand Final on Sunday where they had a strong third place finish behind 1st and second place teams Western Washington and Humboldt. The 1st Novice 8+ advanced to Grands after a third place finish in their heat on Saturday, finishing in the third place position to take bronze on Sunday.
This year the team also entered more boats than in previous seasons. The events included a Novice 4+, a Lightweight 4+, a 2nd Novice 8+, and a Varsity 2- in addition to the usual Varsity 8+, 1st Novice 8+, and Varsity 4+. All crews had strong performances in their events including a first place finish in the petite final for the Varsity 8+.
