Women's Varsity 4 Places Fifth at NCRC Championships
LAKE STEVENS - A fifth-place performance in the women's varsity 4 and a fourth in the men's novice 4 were among the top showings by Pacific Lutheran at the Northwest Collegiate Rowing Conference Championships held Saturday on Lake Stevens.
The PLU women's varsity 4 came into the regatta on the strength of two straight wins, including last Sunday's Lamberth Cup victory over rival Puget Sound, but Division II powers Seattle Pacific and Western Washington proved to be too much. Seattle Pacific upset Western, winning by less than 1.5 seconds.
On the men's side, the Lutes had boats in four races, and three of those were won by Lewis & Clark.
"Overall, a relatively competitive showing in all events," PLU head coach Tone Lawver stated. "The conference as a whole brought their 'A' games to the conference championship."
