TKMdi Standing on a frost covered dock, two crew members deliberate over the dilemma of having cold feet or wet socks before entering their shell for morning practice. Mill Crvjm-.rll The Varsity 8 men wear sweats while warming up at 6:00 a.m., and jog for about 20 minutes before entering the water for their daily practice. Rowing full power for 10 minutes during a "power piece" conditioning exercise is Chris Somers, Paul Jen-ning and Gerry McBarron. in history," said Emigh. "Six out of seven men's crews qualified and the women qualified four boats for the finals." OSU also medaled (top three) in five events, which was the most ever. The women traveled to Sacramento, California on May 30 to compete in Nationals. The women placed a strong fourth in both the varsity four and the varsity lightweight four. The men's nationals were held in Albany, New York on June 13-14. OSU placed fourth in the lightweight eight category. Rowing is the only sport that offers the general student body the opportunity to participate at the varsity level," noted Emigh. "Previous credentials aren't a determinant. You can have a successful program without previous experience." Emigh added that dedication played a large part in the success of the team. And dedicated they were! The crew season lasted from October to June with members working out stren-ously the entire time. During the fall, athletes practiced five days per week. In January, this was increased to six days a week, often with workouts twice a day. Most of the workouts involved weight lifting and stair running, but predictably, a large part of the workout involved rowing, often 40-80 miles per week. Because the legs provided most of the driving force, a lot of emphasis was palced on strengthening the legs. "They emphasize the technical part," said 22-year-old Zoology major MacVVhisler. The technique was important. Emigh claimed that oarsmen were continually looking for the perfect form. 240 Crew

A 5:30 am weekday workout begins with a 10 minute warm-up circuit exercise before a Varsity team meeting in the barn. Weight lifting, running, rowing, early morning practices all pay dividends in victories as the crew team grows to be Gripping cold, frosty air, chilling water and aching muscles — not exactly the kinds of things that make you want to jump out of bed in the morning. Or are they? For Oregon State University's 120 member crew team, early morning practices, and lots of them, were all in a year's work. The team trained under a fine coaching staff consisting of Head Coach Dave Emigh, women's coach, Roger Payne and assistant coaches John Holtman and Holly Kays. "It (the coaching staff) is really good," commented se- nior oarsman, Mac Whisler. "The program has at least doubled in size since 1 first came here four years ago." And doubled it had! In fact, Emigh watched the program grow from 40 to 120 active rowers in just five years. The 1987 season was highlighted by quite a few events. At the beginning of the season, the Beavers traveled to Victoria, B.C. The men's varsity team beat both the University of Victoria and the University of British Columbia for the first time in the '80s. In the OSU regatta, one of only two home races for the Beavers, OSU easily dominated the water. The Beavers won 10 of the 11 major races. OSU met the University of Washington for the first time since 1977 on April 18. The dual race was from the men's varsity heavyweight and lightweight teams. The Pacific Coast Rowing Championships were held in Sacramento, California. "OSU showed the improvement in the program by qualifying more boats for the finals (top six) than any time.
