The University of the Fraser Valley men’s rowing team hosted Western Washington University in a dual meet on home water in Fort Langley on Saturday.

The weather conditions proved troubling at the start line as quick starts were the commonality in all three races. As UFV’s season starts to wind down, WWU’s is just ramping up and the Cascades were fortunate to be able to offer them some great competition in their first exhibition race.

Results

Race 1: Varsity Fours
1st: UFV V4+
2nd: WWU V4+

Race 2: Varsity/Junior Varsity Eights
1st: WWU V8+
2nd: UFV JV8+

Race 3: Coxed Fours/Quads
1st: UFV JV4X
2nd: WWU Lwt4+
3rd: WWU Nov4+

The first race of the day was for the newly designed Cascade Cup, a challenge cup between the two schools in either the Varsity 8+ or Varsity 4+. It was an extremely tight race, with the UFV Varsity 4+ taking the win by a two-second margin. Adding this element of competition will help both programs succeed in their respective seasons, and we hope to see this tradition continue for many more years.

UFV Rowing would like to wish the WWU men’s rowing team the best of luck during their competitive season, which will feature regattas like the Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association Championships and the Dad Vail Regatta.
