K-State Claims 3rd in Cal Cup Petite Final

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The Kansas State rowing team began the San Diego Crew Classic strong with a third-place finish in its heat of the Women's Collegiate Varsity SeaWorld Cup. The Wildcats crossed the line in 7:16.09 to trail Sacramento State and Tulsa. The Wildcats went on to finish fifth in their Women's Collegiate JV heat and fourth in the Women's Collegiate Novice.

The 2nd Varsity 8 then finished third in a battle with Oklahoma and Loyola in the Women's Collegiate JV 3rd tier. In an extremely tight race for second with Loyola the Wildcats finished just .05 seconds behind in the race.

In the final of the Women's Collegiate Varsity Cal Cup Petite on Sunday, the Wildcats finished third again clocking in at 7:02.35 just behind San Diego State's 7:01.01. Drexel won the race at 6:57.60.

K-State will return to the water this weekend to take on rival Kansas in the annual Kansas Cup on Wyandotte Lake this Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. Last year, the Wildcats won the Kansas Cup for the fifth year in a row over the Jayhawks.
