Rowing Heads South For Winter Training

TAMPA, Fla. – After over a month hiatus from competition, the Jayhawks have traveled to the Tampa Bay area where they will focus on intensive training and conditioning before the spring semester begins.

“This trip is to mainly getting ourselves prepared for race season,” Kansas head coach Rob Catloth said. “We will be cleaning up some technical things and then working off our base from the fall and improving on that as we head into competition when we return to Kansas.”

Although the team will be all business as it trains and prepares for the rest of the season, the Jayhawks will also capitalize on the weather and scenery.

“We are doing two-a-days each day,” said Catloth. ” A lot of universities like us are in cold weather where it freezes and per NCAA rules they allows us to have winter training camp for up to two weeks”

KU will return to Lawrence on Saturday, Jan. 17, and will open the spring season March 5 in a dual meet at the University of Tulsa. The official online source for Kansas Athletics, Williams Education Fund contributions, tickets, merchandise, multimedia, photos and much, much more.
