Cherry Hill, N.J. - The Tulsa women's rowing team will conclude the season tomorrow, as the Golden Hurricane's eighth-ranked Lightweight 8+ advanced to the Petite Final at the Intercollegiate Rowing Association Lightweight National Championship on Friday afternoon in Cherry Hill, N.J.
The Golden Hurricane turned in a fourth-place finish in both the Heat and Repechage. TU's Lightweight 8+, which features Abigail Gorman, Puja Sztorc, Kellyn Smith, Susan Stangl, Hannah Bogan, Molly Selig, Shantel Wagner, Anne Campbell and Heather Brooks, will take on MIT tomorrow morning.
"I am really impressed with these nine women," Head Coach Kevin Harris said. "They learned and improved a lot between the Heat and Repechage, and I am proud of the way they've carried themselves at the national championship. This is only the second year that Tulsa has put an Eight into the national championship and it is a learning process. I am looking forward to seeing how they improve for tomorrow's Petite Final against MIT."
