No. 1 Oklahoma, which hosts Washington in the NCAA Super Regionals this weekend, leads the nation in almost every offensive category. But the Sooners have yet to face unflappable UW ace Gabbie Plain. (from @mikevorel) https://t.co/wsZObAPYQq— Seattle Times Sports (@SeaTimesSports) May 27, 2021

“After a big championship, like the Pac-12, you have a high of a championship, and then you usually come back down emotionally a little bit and then build right back up for the IRAs,” head coach Micahel Callahan said. “This week has been a lot of work, but I think mentally we know you have to reset yourself and regenerate before you take the final step.”
The time is here for the men of @UW_Rowing. After last season was canceled due to COVID-19, the Huskies are looking to get back on the national stage at the IRA Championships this weekend | via @NathanMathisenhttps://t.co/lCUf1sCwQG— The Daily Sports (@UWDailySports) May 27, 2021
Off to good start this AM:
“Teal Cohen’s blade hit the alligator, and the alligator freaked out and flipped and landed on Lark Skov’s oar, and she got launched out of her (rowing) shoes and she landed on Angharad Broughton, who was in the 3 seat behind her,” Yaz Farooq said. “She landed right on the point of Ang’s shoes. She essentially got a shoe in her glute.”
In what almost seems to be an annual tradition, the women of @UW_Rowing are on the big stage at the NCAA Championships, this time looking to defend their 2019 title after last season was cut short due to COVID-19 | via @NathanMathisen https://t.co/IyyfwRbyAA— The Daily Sports (@UWDailySports) May 27, 2021
Congrats to Yaz Farooq, named 2021 Pac-12 Women’s Rowing Co-Coach of the Year (alongside her former @usrowing OIympic boat-mate Amy Fuller Kearney of UCLA) today!#WomenOfWashington x #RowingU x #GoHuskies x #rowing pic.twitter.com/mvKhCTiIMg— Washington Rowing (@UW_Rowing) May 27, 2021

Track and Field
With the first twelve finishers at the NCAA West preliminaries qualifying for the NCAA Championship, Haley Herberg left little doubt all race that she’d be amongst those top finishers after running with the front pack for the majority of the race.
