Lawrence, Kan. -

The University of Tulsa women's rowing team began the spring season on Saturday, taking on host Kansas and Drake on the Kansas River at Burcham Park in Lawrence, Kansas.

In the Varsity Four races, TU split up the Varsity Eight for a trial run and the result was two first-place marks. The First Varsity Four took an early lead, kept up their power and finished six seconds ahead of the Bulldogs, and over 20 seconds in front of the Jayhawks with a time of 7:34.2. The Second Varsity Four also registered a solid performance with their time of 7:44.8.

"The Varsity Four's came together well in the first race of the season," Head Coach Kevin Harris said. "I am pleased with their successful start. They proved they have power and were able sustain that power throughout the race."

When the Varsity Fours combined into the First Varsity Eight, however, the team lost consistency, finishing third with a time of 7:14.0.

"Kansas and Drake rowed well and we just didn't," said Harris. "It is early in the season, so we can go back to Tulsa and work on getting into a steady rhythm."

The Second Varsity Eight turned in a good race for the first competition of the season, finishing second behind a strong Kansas team with a time of 7:18.6.

"The Second Varsity Eight race turned out like we thought it would," Harris said. "Kansas' team has been a tough team in the past and we raced well for the first time in the 2000-meter event."

The Golden Hurricane turned in a third-place mark in the Novice Four with a time of 8:27.45.
