Tomorrow the Kansas rowing team kicks off its spring season with a dual against SMU in Dallas. The races begin at 4 p.m. on White Rock Lake. The Jayhawks will be competing in the Varsity Eight, Varsity Four and Novice Eight.

“We’re looking forward to our first races to get going,” head coach Rob Catloth said. “We want to see where we’re at with one race under our belt and where we need to make improvements. We have some big races this season and we need to be ready.”

This is Kansas’ first competition since November when it broke Kansas State’s three-year win streak with a 14-10 victory, taking three of the five races, at the Sunflower Showdown.
