Kansas rowing reveals 2018 virtual guide
LAWRENCE, Kan. – With Kansas Rowing kicking off the 2018 season in a little less than three weeks, Kansas Athletics has released the Jayhawks’ 2018 media guide. The 53-page virtual guide, which includes a roster of all 59 Jayhawks, coaches’ biographies and everything else you need to know about Kansas rowing can be found on kuathletics.com.
The guide highlights KU’s 14,000 square foot boathouse that first opened its doors for the 2009 season. The boathouse, which is located on the Kansas River in Lawrence’s Burcham Park, features locker rooms, an erg room, an athletic training room and can house up to 65 boats in the storage area on the lower level.
Along with the boathouse, the virtual guide also features a section dedicated to the evolution of rowing and a little background of the sport for those wanting to learn a little more about rowing. Photos also showcase the annual Jayhawk Jamboree, which takes place every fall on he banks of the Kansas River. The Jamboree doesn’t just play host to a great rowing event, but also offers a great atmosphere to the thousands of fans that come out to partake in all the food, music and all that Jamboree has to offer.
To go with all the rowing amenities at the boathouse on the Kansas River, the Jayhawks also have an $8 million state of the art strength and conditioning center on campus that allows KU to stay in race-ready condition during the offseason and prepare for the upcoming spring season.
Interim head coach Carrie Cook-Callen is featured along with assistant coaches Kelsey Arnold and Rachelle Pauly. Cook-Callen is entering into her sixth season as a member of the Kansas rowing coaching staff and first as interim head coach after being a part of the Kansas rowing team herself from 2002-04. Arnold and Pauly enter into their fourth and second seasons as assistant coaches with Kansas, respectively.
The virtual guide concludes with year-by-year results, records, awards and championships dating all the way back to Kansas’ inaugural year of 1995. Some of those highlighted are the 22 coxswains who have been awarded the Nikia Rosenberger Outstanding Coxswain and the 26 Jayhawks who have received Oarswoman of the Year.
Kansas will kickoff the 2018 season with a scrimmage in Tulsa March 9-10. Fans can also catch the Jayhawks in action at home on April 7 for the Big 12 Double Dual and April 28 for the annual Dillons Sunflower Showdown against Kansas State at Wyandotte County Lake in Kansas City, Kan.
