LAWRENCE, Kan. – K-State Women’s finished the fall in impressive fashion with a solid showing at the Jayhawk Jamboree in Lawrence, Kansas. Highlighting the Wildcats’ day on the Lawrence River were top-three finishes from the Women’s Varsity 8 and Novice 8 boats.

Competing against host Kansas, as well as Iowa, Tulsa and Wichita State, the Wildcats opened Saturday’s regatta with two top-10 finishes in the Varsity 8 Final. The ‘A’ boat took third in a time of 13:25.52, while the ‘B’ crew placed sixth in 13:41.89. Finishing ahead of the Wildcat ‘A’ crew was only Iowa’s ‘A’ and ‘B’ squads.

K-State’s lone Novice 8 followed that performance finishing second in the Novice 8 Final. Placing behind only the Hawkeyes’ ‘A’ crew, the Wildcats finished the race in 14:41.17 – one of only four boatings to complete the race in under 15 minutes.
