SPOKANE, Wash. – The Gonzaga Bulldogs are hosting the Washington State Cougars on Saturday at Silver Lake just outside of Spokane in the annual Fawley Cup.

The Zags have taken the cup 11 times since 2002, missing in just 2015, 2014, 2011, and 2006. Last season in Pullman, the Zags swept the varsity eight, second varsity eight, third varsity eight, and novice eight races. The Zags also swept the event in 2013, 2009, 2008, 2005, 2004, 2003, and 2002.

The GU second varsity eight has been dominant as well, winning every year in the series since 2002 except 2010 and 2007. The third varsity eight has only lost two times since 2002, in 2015 and 2011.

The novices have had some good battles, and GU has won 11 times since 2002. The varsity fours have not raced since 2013, but Gonzaga has eight victories in that setting since 2002, never losing a varsity four race.

The most dominant Gonzaga varsity eight victories came in 2016 and 2007, when the Zags won by 22 seconds and 28 seconds, respectively. The best races in GU victories came in 2010 and 2005, when the Bulldogs won by just over a second both times.

The Bulldogs second varsity eight and third varsity eight most recently defeated the Cougars in both races at the Husky Open in Seattle on April 1. The second varsity eight was better by 30 seconds and the third varsity eight won by seven seconds.

The teams met three times in the fall, at the Head of the Snake, Head of the Lake, and Head of the Spokane. The GU varsity eight and second varsity eight boats won all three races, and the WSU novice eight boat won all three of theirs.

The racing will begin with the novice eight race at 9 am with the varsity eight to follow at 9:15 am. At 9:30 am it is the third varsity eights and novice four boats, wrapping with the second varsity eight at 9:45 am.

"We're looking forward to wrapping up the regular season racing for the Fawley Cup on our home water,” Gonzaga assistant coach Mark Voorhees said. “It hasn't been the most ideal season for us in many respects, but we're starting to get some of the pieces in place and are excited to test our speed. The next three weeks are going to be critical and this race will give us a better idea of what we've got to get done before the Western Sprints Championships."

Race Schedule:
Novice 8 – 9:00 am
Varsity 8 – 9:15 am
