The Longhorns have earned the title of being the first league member to win three consecutive selections of the Big 12 Boat of the Week award this past week in the Big 12 Conference. The Texas varsity eight were ranked number one this week, and still remain ranked at number one for the latest rankings made by the NCAA (http://www.ncaa.com/rankings/rowing/d1). When the Longhorns competed at the Big 12 Double Dual site in Oklahoma City on April 8, the two Texas varsity boats clocked in with the fastest times among other Big 12 competitors at the event.
The Longhorns success this year has been like any other…these ladies are working hard every week, every competition and representing Texas and The University of Texas above and beyond! Texas Rowing is expected to lead the Conference on May 13 at the Big 12 Championships in Tennessee and are anticipated to extend their winnings to the NCAA Championships in New Jersey the following week.
