RCW: A Look Back 3.29
Due to the low number of Big 12 schools that sponsor rowing, inter-conference competition is nothing new for the Kansas team. As they head to Bloomington this weekend for a matchup against Indiana, let’s take A Look Back at the 2012 Conference USA and Big 12 Champion First Varsity Four boat.
The boat, composed of senior rowers Kathryn Schoonover, Paige Stephens and coxswain Lindsey Bricklemyer and junior rowers Ashleigh Allam and Emily Starr, won the Conference USA grand final with a time of 7:35.5. The win marked the third-straight regatta in which the varsity four won gold, as the Jayhawks did it at the Knecht Cup on April 15 and the Big 12 Championship on April 28.
From 2010-15, Kansas competed as an affiliate member of Conference USA.
