Rowing Competes Against Kansas In Saturday Scrimmage

first_imgLAWRENCE, Kan. – The Drake University rowing team traveled to Lawrence, Kan., on Saturday for a controlled scrimmage against the Kansas Jayhawks on the Kansas River. Drake and Kansas raced head-to-head in seven total races that featured each team’s varsity 8, 2nd varsity 8 and varsity 4 boats. The teams rotated rowers and coxswains in-and-out for each segment and the course distance was 1,250 meters for five segments, 1,000 meters for one segment and a 500-meter segment. “Kansas is a team on the verge of the top-25 rankings,” said head coach Charlie DiSilvestro. “We used it as day to get looks at future lineups and do that in race conditions against a really good team. Some results helped us find lineups for Lubbers Cup, coming in two weeks. The biggest thing is we got lots of good race experience against a really good team. We learned a lot about ourselves today, what we need to do to prepare for Lubbers and we must continue to get more speed in our boats.” Saturday’s goal for Drake was to continue preparation for its first official race this spring, the Lubbers Cup, held April 9-10, in Grand Haven, Mich. Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more
