All-Conference

Alyssa Bebout and Katie Snodgrass were both named All-Northwest Conference rowers, the NWC announced earlier this week. Bebout rowed in the women's varsity-eight three-seat, and Snodgrass was in the two-seat, during the NWC Championships in Vancouver, Washington, Saturday. The WV8 placed second overall, timing in at 7:04.6 – just about three seconds of the championship time. Bebout - a senior - and Snodgrass – a junior – were leaders for Puget Sound's WV8. The boat was twice named the NWC Crew of the Week during the 2018-19 year.
