Kansas rowing’s Sunflower Showdown moved to Friday

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Due to forecasted inclement weather this weekend, Kansas rowing’s Sunflower Showdown against K-State has been moved to Friday evening on the Kansas River. The regatta begins at 5:45 p.m. and will last until approximately 7 p.m., followed by the recognition of KU’s senior class.

The race is free and open to the public to view at the Kansas Boathouse, located in Burcham Park (200 Indiana Street, Lawrence, Kansas).

The annual in-state matchup, which KU has won the last two years, was originally scheduled for Saturday morning on Wyandotte County Lake in Kansas City, but the National Weather Service is forecasting rain for the entire day in the area.

The Sunflower Showdown is the final tune-up before the Big 12 Championship regatta in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, May 13-14.
