Kansas Rowing Opens Spring Season with Exhibition at Tulsa

March 21, 2008

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas Rowing will open its 2008 spring campaign this Saturday in Catoosa, Okla., against the Tulsa Golden Hurricane. The Jayhawks’ will battle along the Verdigris River at Rogers Point Park. The exhibition will serve as Kansas’ first action since the Sunflower Showdown against K-State last November.

Tulsa is led by fifth year head coach Kevin Harris. Last year, Kansas and Tulsa were scheduled to face-off along with Drake, but poor weather forced a cancellation of the triangular regatta. Saturday’s duel will act as an exhibition because Tulsa will only fill two boats.

Kansas will officially open its 2008 spring campaign a week from Saturday in Austin, Texas against the Texas Longhorns.
