The Tulsa women’s rowing team is in New Jersey this weekend to participate in the William Knecht Cup in Cherry Hill, N.J. The Golden Hurricane is slated to compete in several events.

This is one of the largest early-season regattas, as TU will face 25 crews from across the nation. Tulsa will take on Georgetown, Gonzaga, St. Joseph’s, SMU and Temple, as well as other schools from the Big East, Atlantic 10, Atlantic Coast and other various conferences.

“We are going to race three Eights for the first time in school history at this regatta, and we will face strong competition in each of the races,” Head Coach Kevin Harris said. “We are looking to mix it up with the best and see how we compare.”

Tulsa has competed in one regatta during the spring season, posting first-place marks in seven of the eight races against Creighton at home in the Lawless Cup.
