Women's Crew getting ready for WCC tournament

When people think of dominant athletics at Gonzaga, one's mind instantly jumps to the Gonzaga basketball team. But some people might be surprised to find that there is another dominant force on this campus....the women's crew team.

This weekend the team will head to Sacramento in search of their 11th WCC championship in the last 12 years. The only year the Zags lost out on the title was in 2006 when LMU was the surprise winner. The Zags reclaimed the championship last year, winning all 3 races by an average of 17 seconds

This same weekend, the team will also be competing in the WIRA (Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association) championships. This will feature teams from the Pac-10, the WIRA, and the WCC. Last year, the Zags won two races and placed second in another at the WIRA.

Best of luck to the ladies, and hopefully they will extend their domination.
