LAKEWOOD, Wash. - The Western Washington University rowing team opened the 2018 season winning three of four races at the PLU Invitational held Saturday morning on American Lake.
WWU's Varsity 8 swept its races against host Pacific Lutheran University and then beat the University of Puget Sound. The 2nd Varsity 8 won its first race against PLU, but couldn't come from behind in its second race of the day matching up against UPS.
The Vikings are the defending NCAA Division II National Champions after winning the program's eighth national title in 2017.
"I thought today went really well. We wanted to get some time on a different lake with different opponents, and we accomplished that today," said 20th-year head coach John Fuchs. "I really liked the way the team rowed. Their skills have improved over the last two months. We are looking forward to training during spring break."
Here are the results of WWU's four races from the PLU Invitational:
