1958 Husky Crew Chapter 1: Banned
Rowing Archives/Lenny O'Donnell  · July 16, 2017
The 1958 University of Washington Crew was banned from post-season competition because of NCAA sanctions agains the U.W. Football Program. With one of his best crews in decades and nowhere in the U.S. to compete for a championship, Coach Al Ulbrickson decided to take his crew to the Henley Royal Regatta in England to earn their shot at greatness. The crew was accompanied by a young Keith Jackson in the early years of his career on local TV in Seattle. One notable member of this crew, in the 2-seat, was Dick Erickson, who later became the head rowing coach at the U.W. and was renowned for taking his crews all over the world to compete. Another star in the boat was stroke John Sayre, who only made the boat for the last domestic race of his senior year. He went on to stroke the gold medal coxless four in the 1960 Rome Olympics. This is a 3-minute segment from a short film made about the adventure that was never aired or published.
