Rowing Spring Campaign Opens This Saturday

March 21, 2007


The Kansas rowing team will make its 2007 debut Saturday, March 24 at home on the Kansas River near Burcham Park. KU will host the SMU Mustangs and the Texas Longhorns. Races will begin at 9 a.m. with the Second Novice Eight and will end following the conclusion of the First Varsity Eight race.

KU last saw live action on November 11, 2006 when they defeated the Kansas State Wildcats 14-11 in a fall dual. Despite a cold winter, the rowing team was able to maintain conditioning in the winter by training for a week in Austin, Tex. from Jan. 8-17.
