NORMAN – Entering its 10th season of competition, the Oklahoma rowing team begins its fall slate Saturday at the Head of the Oklahoma regatta in the Oklahoma City Boathouse District.

The Sooners will compete in four separate races on Saturday before concluding their opening weekend with two races Sunday.

The races are a part of the four-day Oklahoma Regatta Festival and include day racing along with OGE NightSprints and a family festival. The 2.5-mile head races will take place during the day and feature several collegiate teams and club squads. Saturday’s night sprints start at dusk on the 500-meter OGE course.  

The Sooners will start the weekend with the women’s collegiate varsity eight at 12:30 p.m., followed by the varsity fours race at 4:20 p.m. The novice eights will see action in their first competition of the year at 4:45 p.m. OU will conclude the day with the varsity eight NightSprints at 8 p.m.

The Sooners will cap the weekend with a pair of races Sunday morning, starting with the women’s collegiate 1x at 8:25 a.m. and the women’s open 2- at 8:40 a.m.

The Head of the Oklahoma marks the first of four fall regattas this season and the only home regatta of the fall slate.
