On Saturday the K-State women’s rowing team made it four Sunflower Showdown victories in a row as it took out Kansas with an overall score of 17-6.
They Jayhawks kept it close all morning out on Wyandotte County Lake, going into the final two races leading the Wildcats 6-2.
The Wildcats started their comeback with an impressive 9.1 second win by the second Varsity 8 boat. They are the defending Big 12 Boat of the Week.
That win gave the Wildcats an 8-6 lead heading into a winner-take-all race between both first Varsity 8 boats. The Wildcats 4.1 second win secured a win in the regatta and ensured that the Kansas Cup would spend another year in Manhattan.
The Wildcats look to continue their strong momentum in San Diego this weekend for the San Diego Crew Classic on April 5 and 6.
