Rowing Competes in Shortened Dual Versus Kansas

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The Drake University rowing team competed against the Kansas Jayhawks in a shortened dual Saturday on the waters of Wyandotte County Lake. Only two of the four scheduled races between Drake and Kansas launched due to high wind conditions.

"It was a mixed day for us today as really happy with the boats that raced but disappointed for our fours not to get to compete," said Drake head coach Charlie DiSilvestro. "It was the right call though as it became unrowable and would have made it unfair racing."

The day was cut short, due to choppy weather conditions on the water as wind speeds made it difficult to row.
