Bulldogs Battle Cougars At Head Of The Spokane
Oct. 14, 2017

SPOKANE, Wash. – The Zags opened their 2017-18 season by hosting Washington State Saturday morning in the annual Head of the Spokane on the Spokane River.

The morning was crisp and chilly, with patches of cloud cover. The course was setup at 5000 meters with a very light chop and a crosswind of 8 mph from the south.

The GU varsity eight raced twice, finishing at 17:07 and 17:12, and beating WSU on their second run by five seconds. WSU had the top time at 16:50. The second varsity eight also went twice at 17:44 and 18:01, with WSU claiming the top two times.

The Zags’ varsity four raced once at 20:58, one minute off the WSU pace. The GU first novice eight defeated the WSU Club squad by a little under a minute at 20:39, and the second novice eight did the same by almost two minutes at 20:43. The third and fourth novice eights raced unopposed at 23:20 and 24:13, respectively.

“It was great to get the crews out on the water and give them a couple opportunities to race,” Gonzaga head coach Glenn Putyrae said. “Some of the varsity boats made good changes between races and it was a ton of fun to see the novices out there for the first time as Zags. At this time in the season everything is day to day, but today was a very positive step.”

Two weeks from now the Zags will be on the site of the West Coast Conference Championships and Lake Natoma in Gold River, Calif. for the Head of the American.
