The Stanford men's rowing team won two of its three races in a dual with Oregon State Saturday, with its varsity eight boat claiming the Mac Babbit Trophy for the 14th straight year.
"In tribute of our traditional rivalry, today we raced fiercely and with determination to secure the Mac Babbitt Trophy once again for Stanford," said Cardinal coach Craig Amerkhanian.
The Cardinal's eighth-ranked varsity eight highlighted the morning's racing with an open-water victory over No. 17 Oregon State. Stanford raced down the Dexter Lake course to a time of 5:58.55, besting the Beavers' time of 6:06.84.
Stanford also claimed victory in the second varsity eight. The Cardinal's boat finished with a time of 6:11.25 to Oregon State's 6:15.52.
The Beavers took their lone victory in the third varsity eight, where their time of 6:25.56 outpaced Stanford's 6:28.17.
"Today was good preparation for next week's Pac-12 championships for all three boats, and we're looking forward to the challenge," added Amerkhanian.
Stanford heads to Gold River Sunday, May 13, to compete in the Pac-12 championships at Lake Natoma.
