March 23, 2007

SPOKANE , Wash. - The Gonzaga University women's crew program will host Washington State University on Saturday morning at Silver Lake in Medical Lake, Wash. The regatta will start at 8:00 a.m. with a shell dedication, before the race begins at 9:30 a.m. with the Novice 8+ race. The final race of the day, the Varsity 4+, is scheduled to start at 11:30 a.m. The Varsity 8+ race is set for a 10:00 a.m. start. Racing will include the Varsity 8+, Junior Varsity 8+, 3rd Varsity 8+, Novice 8+, 2nd and 3rd Novice 8+, Varsity 4+, and Novice 4+.


" Washington State is coming off a great season where it finished fourth at the NCAA's," said head coach Glenn Putyrae. "We are fortunate to open up the season with this caliber of program. I am looking forward to some great racing."


The shell dedication, which will begin the regatta, is in honor of former novice coach Kate Tytus. Tytus spent five seasons with the Bulldogs as their novice crew coach.
