2012 Outlook - “It’s going to be a great year for the Golden Hurricane. Tulsa looks to build upon 2011’s momentum as a strong group of seniors provides leadership for the team. 2012 will mark Tulsa’s most challenging schedule to date as TU travels twice to the West Coast in a three week period. While there, Tulsa will race in a combined 9 teams who finished in the Top 20 in 2011. In addition to the West Coast racing, TU faces big challenges from regional rivals and the teams who compete at the C-USA Championships in May. When the Varsity Lightweight 8 races are added into that mix, it all adds up to a schedule with lots of opportunity to show speed for the Golden Hurricane.
"TU opens in early March at the OU Invite in Oklahoma City. After that the Golden Hurricane seek to better their 2nd Place Varsity 8 finish in last year’s Cal Cup at the San Diego Crew Classic. The TU Lightweights will also get to race #1 Stanford, MIT, and top collegiate Canadian Crews in the Lightweight 8. Two week’s later TU heads to the Lake Natoma Invite sponsored by Cal and CSUS. Tulsa will host SMU at home and the split the team for the end of the season. The Openweight rowers will head to the C-USA Conference Championship and push to better its 5th place finish from 2011. The Lightweight 8 will seek other lightweights by traveling to the Dad Vail Regatta in order to win and earn a bid for June’s IRA Championships.
"University of Tulsa rowers are pushing hard for a successful season. The trend lines are good and the team is working hard while having fun. 2012 should be a season to make the Golden Hurricane Nation proud!”
