Husky Freshmen Will Race At Henley Regatta

Washington's National Champion Freshman 8 will be traveling to Henley to compete in the 2010 Henley Regatta's Temple Cup event.  This is the first trip to Henley by a Washington crew since the Varsity Eight won the Ladies' Plate in 2003.

The Temple Cup is offered for "student eights", limited to athletes who have not won certain Henley events previously.  In Henley tradition, events follow with the Grand Challenge (unlimited experience, generally open national teams or composite squads made of elite level oarsmen);  The Ladies' Plate (generally for top university squads or lightweight national teams, but usually Varsity 8's and pre-elite oarsmen); and the Temple Cup (often raced by varsity lightweights, smaller college V8s, open 2V8's, and champion frosh crews).  Washington has only entered this event once before, the 1997 National Champion 2V8 advancing to the quarterfinals, the eventual winner Goldie taking that race.  In 2009, the US National Champion Princeton lightweights won the event over Brown's frosh 8 by 3/4's of a length.

As our friends, alums and parents know, the Stewards are in the midst of a three year campaign to raise a million dollars to support the program.  Trips like this fall outside of the operating budget, and are dependent on other sources of revenue to make them happen.  As a team, all nine athletes and their families are committed to this trip.  For the most part, it is currently being funded by the students and parents.  But for our friends and alums who are looking for something other than scholarships and equipment gifts, this trip is an excellent opportunity to support the goals of our program.  It has been seven long years since the white blades of Washington have cut the Thames at Henley, and this promises to be a very special trip for nine National Champion athletes that are only now beginning to make their mark at Conibear.

This is the first time since 1978 that a Washington freshman contingent will visit Henley.  That year, a composite crew made up of the stern 4 of the frosh 8, along with four 2V8 rowers, were knocked out in the first round of the Thames Cup (now limited to only club crews) by Neptune RC.  Of those four freshmen however, all would ultimately have storied careers at Washington, two (Charlie Clapp and Marius Felix) becoming Olympians, another (John Zevenbergen) a world championship bronze medalist.

The cost is $3,500 per athlete for the 12-day trip, outlined as follows:
