The Kansas Rowing team got the opportunity to compete in front of their home fans at Burcham Park on Saturday as they hosted the Jayhawk Jamboree, which featured opponents from Creighton, Iowa and Kansas State.
Head coach Carrie Cook-Callen has announced the addition of Dan Duxbury, Milos Aleksic and John Leonard to the rowing coaching and support staff. Duxbury joins as an assistant coach, Aleksic will serve as the graduate assistant and Leonard is set to be the new boathouse manager and rigger.
Continuously on the cutting edge in college athletics, Kansas Athletics has officially launched Jayhawks Ascend -- a program designed to assist student-athletes in their journey of pursuing a degree from the University of Kansas.
For Coach Carrie Cook-Callen, it is important that her athletes feel comfortable in their own skin and understand that at KU, it's all about embracing the culture of a radically inclusive boathouse—a term coined to express and showcase total inclusivity.
Fair or not, the position commands attention and demands maturity.
Kansas Athletics student-athletes continued to standout in the classroom, collecting a 3.40 department grade-point average for the 2021 spring semester. Each of the 14 teams recorded a 3.00 GPA or better, with five teams establishing new program records.
