Washington Crew Wins Their 8th Straight Overall Title

Courtesy UW Media Relations

Washington's dominance in men's crew continued today on the waters of Lake Mercer in West Windsor, NJ.

It was a historic day in West Windsor, NJ as the Washington Huskies claimed their 4th straight IRA Title in men's varsity eights (and 17th overall), a feat only 3 programs have accomplished since the IRA races were first held back in 1895.  Their dominance extended throughout the regatta, as their varsity fours claimed their 5th straight championship (and 8th overall since the Eric W. Will trophy was first awarded in 1968) and the freshmen eight won their third straight Stewards Cup (and 23rd ever) as freshman champs.

As a group, the program claimed an unprecedented 8th straight Jim Ten Eyck trophy as overall points champion and a record 12th overall.

The varsity eight crew faced off against traditional Ivy League powers Brown, Princeton, Yale and Harvard and their primary rivals Cal.   The Huskies started fast and the Bears couldn't stay with them, eventually finishing 3rd with Brown taking 2nd, finishing 2.5 seconds behind the Huskies.
