The Wichita State rowing team won five medals on Saturday, Sept. 29, at Oklahoma City University's Head of the Oklahoma regatta in Oklahoma City.
The 4,000-meter race was the team's first racing event of the season and was part of the Oklahoma Regatta Festival that took place Sept. 27-29.
The men's novice eight team entered three crews in their race. Two of the novice crews placed first and second, securing a fifth-consecutive gold medal in the event, as well as a silver medal.
The novice men had the opportunity to race again in three boats of the men's open eight event, in which non-collegiate athletes could also compete. One crew won the silver medal with WSU alumnus Lisa Burns as coxswain and graduate student Ryan Hollingshead in the stroke seat.
A WSU women's novice eight team won bronze in its event.
Other WSU crews that competed were women's varsity eight, finishing 18th out of 21 crews; men's varsity eight, finishing sixth out of 12 crews; and women's novice eight, finishing sixth out of nine crews.
