Rowing at Washington dates to 1901, but something special happened last weekend. UW men’s crew became the first program to win five straight Intercollegiate Rowing Association varsity eight titles after dominating the field Sunday at Mercer Lake in New Jersey. The Huskies surpassed previous four-time winners California (1999-2002) and Cornell (1955-58 and 1909-1912). It was the Huskies’ 12th title overall, the most of any team dating to 1895 when the championship regatta began.
