USA LACROSSE

Jeren

Jeren Andreotti, a local Woodinville senior has been invited to play for the USA in a Lacrosse Tournament that begins in Berlin on June 15, 2017.  He has played for the Woodinville LAX club for the past six years, and has been highlighted as a top defender in the Kingco League and in the State of Washington.  Says Andreotti of the invitation, “I am so honored to play the sport I love most, and for the country I love too.  It’s pretty incredible to have the chance to do this and make lacrosse a more global sport.” 

UW ROWING

2v8 champs

GOLD RIVER, Calif. – A foot. Sixty-nine thousandths of a second. That  was the difference as the UW men's rowing team fell agonizingly short of regaining the Intercollegiate Rowing Association national championship regatta Sunday at Lake Natoma.

Having won national titles in each of their other three races – the second and third varsity eights and the varsity four – Washington fell to Yale by 0.069 seconds in the feature race of the regatta, the men's varsity eight grand final.

"I think they had an outstanding race," UW head coach Michael Callahan said of his varsity eight. "It looked like we were in position to maybe do it, but in the end Yale was able to have a better day.

"I  think Yale  has   developed a lot of experience," Callahan continued. "They have been winning a lot of close races. They have a lot of veterans in that boat now and it's a tribute to them."

The Huskies did regain the Jim Ten Eyck Memorial Trophy as the overall points champion, their 10th in the last 11 years, thanks to national titles in the other three categories. Washington finished with 211 points (points were awarded for the three eights races only), while Yale came in second with 195.  The Huskies' streak of nine straight Ten Eycks had been broken last year.

The 2nd varsity boat has two Woodinville natives in it and they earned the "Kennedy Cup" and a national championship.  They are Junior Rielly Milne-coxswain and Freshman Sam Halbert-3 seat.
