The Tulsa women's rowing team topped Kansas State in all three Varsity races on Friday afternoon at the Oklahoma Invitational on the Arkansas River in Oklahoma City, Okla. TU will continue racing tomorrow beginning at 7:50 am at the Exchange Boathouse.

TU's Varsity 4+ was nearly 30-seconds faster than the Wildcats with a time of 8:40.43, while the Varsity 8+ recorded a two-second win with a time of 7:24.22. In the Second Varsity 8+, TU also came out ahead in a time of 7:47.21.

The Golden Hurricane earned 27 points in the Varsity races, which goes toward the seeding for Sunday's competition.

KSU's Novice 4+ was two seconds faster with a first-place time of 9:13.62, and their Novice 8+ posted a time of 7:51.68, over eight-seconds faster than Tulsa's Lightweight 8+.

"I thought we had great racing today," Head Coach Kevin Harris said. "Because of the weather, we haven't been able to get out on the water the last three days, but the team relied on our training and went out and raced well. We knew Kansas State was going to be a tough team, but we put together some solid races and did what we needed to do today. We are happy with our results and we are looking forward to taking on Kansas tomorrow."
