Oars and shells with female touch
Ben Hur learned lo row while working for the Italian government nearly 2,000 years ago. The technique of oarsmanship might have changed a bit over the years; the people participating certainly have. Women have even adopted the activity as a sport.
The women's crew team didn't work on any galleys, but participated in shells and sculls against women from other colleges on the West Coast.
Over 20 OSU women participated in such events as eight-oar and four-oar rowing, and single and double sculling. Practice continues throughout the fall and winter. The season begins in the spring.
This season culminated with the West Coast Women's Championship Regatta in Oakland, CA., in May.

4,876-4,875: Women bowlers strike out!
Keg!er is derived from the Creek kegel which means ninepin. Sportsmen added an extra pin and allowed women to play. Now the female gender outnumbers the male participants in the game. Male supremacy doesn't hold on the lanes.
The OSU women's club competed in the same manner as the men with qualifying members of the club travelling to tournaments. OSU finished first in the ACU-I tournament and fell one pin short of Boise State and the regional championship when the team could come up with but 4,875 pins to Boise State's 4,876.

Club hosts first Northwest rodeo
Imagine how a 2,000 pound bull looks when you're underneath him. Or how it feels hitting the ground after you've missed bull-dogging a steer. Or yet, how disappointed you are when the goat you just tied gets loose.
For 80 Rodeo Club members these adventures are a part of their favorite sport.
Two western dances, two jackpots and an intercollegiate rodeo highlighted the year's club activities.
The club hosted their first Northwest Intercollegiate Rodeo in March, which was held at Linn County Fairgrounds in Albany.
In the spring, the club sent six men and three women with alternates to compete in nine intercollegiate rodeos in Oregon, Washington and Idaho. The men competed in bareback, saddlebronc and bull riding, calf roping, ribbon roping and bull dogging. The women participated in barrel racing, goat tying and breakaway roping.
