DURHAM, N.C. – The Duke rowing team toppled No. 20 Oregon State in head-to-head racing in the varsity four and second varsity eight at the Oregon State Classic Saturday on Dexter Lake.

The Blue Devils edged the Beavers by less than two seconds in both races, opening the day with a time of 7:38.1 in the V4 and following with a season-best 6:41.8 in the 2V8. Duke also clocked its two fastest times of the season in the varsity eight, posting a 6:37.53 in a head-to-head loss with Oregon State in the morning session and a 6:38.96 against four top-20 opponents in the afternoon.

The morning’s wins are the first over a top-20 team this season for the Blue Devils, who were ranked No. 20 in the initial CRCA/US Rowing Coaches Poll. Duke faced its toughest lineup of the season Saturday at the Oregon State Classic, lining up against No. 2 Ohio State, No. 9 Michigan and No. 11 Stanford in addition to the 20th-ranked Beavers.

Duke will now get two weeks to prepare for the two-day Clemson Invite, scheduled for April 19-20 on Lake Hartwell in Clemson, S.C.
