TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Alabama rowing will compete at White Rock Lake in Dallas, Texas on Saturday, April 25 against crews from SMU, Texas and Central Oklahoma. The race marks the final regatta this season for Alabama until the Big XII Championships on May 16-17.
The Crimson Tide will send six boats to compete in five races. Events kick off at 8:15 a.m. CT with the Third Varsity 8 and will proceed with races every 15 minutes afterwards, culminating in the First Varsity 8 at 9:15 a.m.
Heading into this weekend, Alabama will be looking to carry its momentum from a strong showing at the Knecht Cup Regatta last time out, where the Tide qualified six boats to event finals, including a second-place finish in the First Varsity 4 Grand Final. The silver medal marked the first top-three finish for Alabama in a Varsity Grand Final in three years of competing at the prestigious event.
Alabama will have two weeks off from competition before heading to Melton Hill Lake in Oak Ridge, Tenn., for the 2015 Big XII Conference Championships. Events will start on Saturday, May 16 with final rounds concluding on Sunday, May 17.
