Tulsa, Okla. - The Tulsa rowers won five of six races against Creighton in a duel on Saturday morning at the J. Bird Sr. Shell Nest in Catoosa, Okla.

"It is always great when Creighton is able to come down, and our last home regatta of the season is also always special because we get to honor our seniors," Head Coach Kevin Harris said. "Creighton is such a good team and they are working so hard, so to get a win over them today was special for us. We've been working really hard to make sure that this was a good showing for Tulsa. As we get ready for the Conference USA Championship, we saw some things today that we need to work on, including our blade work and our work in the third 500 in the Varsity 8+, but we'll get back to work and prepare for the final regattas of the season."

In the first race of the morning, Tulsa's Varsity 8+ turned in a time of 7:07.17 and had four boat lengths of open water before Creighton crossed the finish line with a time of 7:26.37.

The second race featured TU's Lightweight 8+, which claimed the first-place time of 7:26.29, followed by the Hurricane's Second Varsity 8+ in a time of 7:32.89. Creighton's 2V8+ was third with a time of 7:38.09.

Tulsa's Varsity 4+ dominated in their race, posting a time of 8:29.64, more than 30-seconds faster than the Bluejays' time of 9:00.94.

Creighton won their first and only race of the day in the Third Varsity 4+, recording a time of 9:20.40, while TU was four seconds back with a time of 9:24.3.

The Hurricane's Second Varsity 4+ and Lightweight 4+ took on Creighton's 2V4+ in the fifth race. TU's 2V4+ took first with a time of 8:34.8, 25-seconds ahead of the LW4+ (8:59.9) and 42 seconds in front of Creighton (9:16.4).

The Novice 8+'s competed in the final race of the day with the Hurricane turning in a time of 8:35.69, 15 seconds faster than Creighton (8:50.32).

"Our Lightweights did magnificently today, and we tried some different combinations in our Fours, and they did really well too," Harris said. "Creighton won the Third Varsity 4+, so kudos to them, and overall it was just a really good solid day of racing."

After the regatta, TU honored seniors Allyson Brooks, Megan Fitzpatrick, Rosie McCarthy, Megan Melott-Elliott, Meredith Papps, Amanda Schenk, Molly Selig and Puja Sztorc at the boathouse.

Tulsa will return to action at the Dad Vail Regatta on May 10-11 in Philadelphia, Pa.
