The Huskies were also victorious in the second varsity eight and open four events. UW's fourth entry collected a bronze medal in the freshman eight competition.
The three event titles were the most for the Huskies' fleet of crews since 1997 when they claimed top IRA honors in the three eight-oared events. The trio of championship boats continued a streak that has seen at least one Washington crew win a national title during each of the last seven years.
The Huskies' top crew completed a perfect season. That was their first undefeated campaign since 1997, which was also the last year they won the varsity eight event.
Washington also captured the Ten Eyck Trophy, winning the overall points championship for the first time since 1970. UW amassed 216 points, followed by Harvard with 191, California with 190 and Brown with 185.
