The Washington State women’s crew won three races Sunday at the Clemson Invitational on Lake Hartwell in South Carolina.
The varsity eight won its first race and finished third in its second race. The second varsity eight also finished first and third. In the varsity-four races, WSU’s boat was second in the first session and first in the second race.
“It was pretty windy out there,” said WSU coach Jane LaRiviere. “We switched up the lineups today in the varsity eight and the second varsity eight between sessions and I think we learned a few things. It was a solid weekend.”
Gonzaga also competed in the event. The Bulldogs placed third and fifth in their two varsity-eight heats, fifth in both second varsity-eight heats and seventh in varsity four.
