Top-ranked Washington won its fifth consecutive Pac-12 men’s crew title Sunday on Lake Natoma in Gold River, Calif.

The Huskies finished with a team total of 70 points that came from gold-medal finishes for the novice 8+ (5:50.3), the varsity 4+ (6:26.1) and the varsity 8+ (5:36.1). Only the 2V8+ would not take home first place, finishing less than two seconds behind California to take home silver.

Huskies coach Michael Callahan was excited to claim another conference title.

“I thought it was a really successful day, obviously. I was really excited to see the 4+ get a victory over Cal, who had beat them the last time out,” Callahan said. “The 2V8+ dropped a tough one, but we have a younger team this year and I think if we’ve shown it all year, we showed it today. The V8+ on the other hand really stepped it up today and it was really fun to have a last 500 meters like we did today.”

The Stanford women won three of four races to dethrone six-time defending champion California. Stanford scored 44.5 points and was second at 35.5.

The three-time defending national champion Husky men didn’t waste any time on their quest for their fifth straight and 33rd overall Pac-12 title, taking gold in the first two races of the day, men’s novice and men’s varsity four.

In the main event, Washington solidified its spot, fending off pesky California to win the varsity eight race by a mere 1.2 seconds over the Bears, who finished in 5:37.3.

The California men scored 65 to finish second.

For the second consecutive year, the Huskies’ women’s novice boat took gold (6:49.8).

The Huskies were second in varsity eight (6:21.9) and varsity four (7:17.1).
