Whereas the Huskies capped a perfect weekend on Lake Natoma by sweeping all 5 grand finals to win their third-consecutive and 16th overall National Championship for the University of Washington Men’s Crew;

Whereas the Huskies broke their own record in Intercollegiate Rowing Association history, with no team ever winning more than 4 consecutive Ten Eyck awards until the Huskies made it 5 in 2011, 6 in 2012, and now 7 in 2013;

Whereas the entire University of Washington Men’s Crew Team should be commended for demonstrating determination, work ethic, and heart;

Whereas University of Washington Men’s Crew coach, Michael Callahan, has led the team to 4 national titles, 2 second-place titles, never lost a Ten Eyck award, and has accomplished a feat no other program in collegiate rowing has ever accomplished, sweeping every Intercollegiate Rowing Association category at the finals not once but twice;
