Rowing Set to Compete in Head of the Oklahoma on Saturday

CLEMSON, SC – The Clemson women’s rowing team will travel to Oklahoma City, OK, to compete in the Head of the Oklahoma on Saturday, September 29. The regatta will be the Tigers’ first regatta of the fall season.

“Our team has been training really hard, and I am incredibly pleased with our progress this fall,” said Clemson head coach Robbie Tenenbaum. “We are excited to be racing at the Head of the Oklahoma Regatta on Saturday afternoon and the folks in Oklahoma City always put on a great regatta.”

The Clemson Varsity 8+ crew will compete at 12:25 p.m. on Saturday followed by the Varsity 4+ crew at 4:20 p.m. The top 12 finishers in the afternoon 4000-meter head race get invited back to race in a 500-meter night sprint that evening.

“The event organizers light up the race course with stadium quality lights, and it is a unique and fun experience for our student-athletes,” Tenenbaum said.

In addition, the Tigers’ novice 4+ crew will take part in the Tail of the Tiger hosted by the Clemson Rowing Club on Lake Hartwell on Saturday.

“Our Novice coach, Melanie Onufrieff, has been doing a great job getting our novices prepared,” said Tenenbaum. “We are looking forward to seeing how they perform this weekend against some more experienced athletes in a varsity level race. “
