Wildcat rowing takes hot streak into San Diego


The K-State women’s rowing team will be back in action this weekend as they head to San Diego to take part in the 41st annual San Diego Crew Classic on Saturday and Sunday.

The Wildcats have been on a tear as of late with their most recent victory coming in the Sunflower Showdown against bitter in-state rival Kansas. The victory was capped by impressive showings by both varsity boats, with the 1st Varsity 8 clinching the 17-6 victory in the final race of the regatta.

Due to its impressive performance Saturday, the 1st Varsity 8 was named the Conference USA Boat of the Week. It is K-State’s second honor of late, as the 2nd Varsity 8 was named Big 12 Boat of the Week last week. It is K-State’s second C-USA honor in program history.
