RCW: A Look Back 3.24

This week’s A Look Back features a photograph from the Kansas Athletics collection. The women’s swim & dive photo, donated by former student-athlete Glee Jewell (women’s swimming & diving, 1977-81), appears normal at first glance … a team striding into the venue for a meet. Right? Now, take a closer look and you will see laughter on the faces of the crowd and the athletes. The reason? What you might have thought were swim caps at first are actually costume bald head caps!

Will the Jayhawks pull off another illusion like this one when they enter the Jamail Texas Swimming Center in Austin, Texas this week for the 2017 Big 12 Swimming & Diving Championship?
