Huskies and Cal face off on the Montlake Cut

Dan Raly of the PI, and many others are calling Saturday's Crew race between No. 1 UW, and No. 2 Cal the biggest dual in past half-century.

At 9:45 on Saturday morning on Montlake Cut, the California and UW eight-man varsity crews will lock up in what both sides are hailing as their most anticipated dual meet race of the past half-century. The Golden Bears are the defending national champs. The Huskies are ranked No. 1. There is no shortage of swagger dripping off these shells. "The U Dub boat is going to be very fast," Cal rower Max Wyatt said. "But I'm not too worried about it, to be honest. I'm very confident in our boat speed at Cal." Counters UW fifth-seat occupant Robbie Gibson: "We respect what they've done. They've done it all. We're coming for them. They know it, too. That's the best part."

If you are going to the Spring game on Saturday make sure you head down early so you can catch this race. The view from the Montlake Bridge is phenomenal, and the races are fun to watch! Crew is one of Washington's oldest traditions, so if you can, come early, and root our men to victory over California!
