K-State rowing finishes fall season


The K-State rowing team concluded its fall season yesterday in Lawrence at the Jayhawk Jamboree. K-State’s varsity boats had the best showings in the regatta, while the Wildcats had at least one boat finish in the top five of each race.

The Women’s Varsity 8 race featured K-State’s 8A boat finish second, behind only the Kansas Jayhawks. The Wildcats also had three boats finish in the top five of the Women’s Varsity 4 race.

K-State head coach Patrick Sweeney said that he felt his team was successful at the regatta, especially with different combinations of boats being used throughout the day.

“The main thing is we got to look at different combinations which were helpful in our progress towards looking at the boats for the springtime,” Sweeney said according to a K-State press release. “It was productive, not successful by winning everything, but overall it was good racing four our team.”

The Wildcats don’t kick off their spring season until late March when they head to Austin, Texas for the Longhorn Invitational. Until then, the team will get a chance to workout in their brand new training facility, located just east of Bill Snyder Family Stadium.
