Due to inclement weather, the Jayhawks were unable to begin their spring season against SMU Thursday. They now turn to Big 12 rival Texas to open the season on Saturday, March 25. The races begin at 9 a.m. and will be held on Town Lake in Austin.

The Jayhawks will be competing in the First Varsity Eight, Second Varsity Eight, First Varsity Four, Open Four, First Novice Eight, Second Novice Eight and Third Novice Eight.

“We were hoping to get the race against SMU under our belt to go against Texas,” head coach Rob Catloth said. “We are going down to Austin and prepare for Texas the best we can, and get ready for a good challenge with them.”

The Texas Longhorns are fresh off a successful weekend hosting The Longhorn Invitational. They were victorious in two out of three races against Duke, split victories with Wisconsin and beat Miami in the Varsity Eight.
