Dallas, Texas -

The Tulsa rowers swept SMU and captured the Lawless Cup on Saturday morning at White Rock Lake in Dallas, Texas.

"The team rowed really well," Head Coach Kevin Harris said. "The idea was to come down to SMU and work on our race plan and perfect it. We knew SMU was going to be challenging, especially since they were racing at home. I think the women handled the challenge really well."

In the title race, TU's Varsity 8+ turned in a time of 6:50.9, which was 19 seconds faster than the Mustangs' time of 7:09.0. In the Second Varsity 8+, the Golden Hurricane posted a time of 7:07.4 and the Mustangs were 16 seconds back with a time of 7:23.5.

The Varsity 4+ tallied the biggest margin of victory with a time of 7:59.8. In the same race, TU's Novice 4+ posted a time of 8:38.3, while the SMU boat recorded a time of 8:42.0.

In the closest race of the day, Tulsa's Novice 8+ turned in a time of 7:31.78 compared to the Mustangs' 7:34.35.

"I am really proud of the Varsity 8+ because this was one of their best efforts in how they put their race together," Harris said. "The Novices show really good depth in our team right now, and I am happy with how everyone is rowing, paying attention to detail and their desire to be fast."
