NORMAN, Okla. – The Oklahoma rowing team is set to compete in its second straight NCAA Championship starting Friday, May 30, through Sunday, June 1, at Eagle Creek Park in Indianapolis.

Participating in their second NCAA Championship in only the sixth season in program history, OU qualified for the NCAA regatta after taking first place last Saturday at the Conference USA Championship, earning C-USA's automatic bid. Last season the Sooners took No. 17 at the NCAA regatta, the highest final ranking in program history.

The Sooner first varsity eight will be the first boat on the water for the Sooners in the hopes of reaching even greater heights in this year's competition. The 1V8 will begin competition Friday morning at 8:20 a.m. CT. Seeded No. 18, the 1V8 will compete in heat two along with No. 10 seed Notre Dame, No. 2 Stanford, No. 7 Virginia and No. 15 Wisconsin.

At 9 a.m. CT, the second varsity eight, also seeded No. 18 and in the second heat, will face No. 10 Notre Dame, No. 2 Stanford, No. 7 Princeton and No. 15 Louisville. In the third heat at 9:50 a.m. CT, the first varsity four will compete as the No. 19 seed against No. 11 Notre Dame, No. 3 Ohio State, No. 6 Wisconsin, No. 14 Louisville and No. 22 Jacksonville.

The top two teams from each heat will automatically advance to the semifinals on Saturday, while the remaining teams will try again to earn a semifinal berth in afternoon repechages.

The team championship is composed of 22 teams. Eleven conferences were awarded automatic qualification and the remaining 11 slots were filled with at-large selections to complete the championship field.

Oklahoma won both the Big 12 and C-USA championships this season, completing the sweep for the second straight year. Sooner head coach Leeanne Crain was named Coach of the Year in both conferences, repeating the feat after doing so in 2013 as well. Senior Kristin Clift, a member of the OU 1V8, has been named Rower of the Year in both both conferences and is a CRCA All-Region First Team selection.
