For the first time, high school rowers will get the chance to win a scholarship to Wichita State University during the Shocker Sprints Indoor Rowing Race next month.
The race, from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, at WSU's Heskett Center, will be a scholarship competition for high school athletes.
The best male and best female rower of the 2,000-meter distance on rowing machines will win a $250 scholarship to Wichita State and the opportunity to be part of Shocker Rowing.
Each athlete competing at Shocker Sprints is represented by a boat on a screen that is visible to all. Spectators and competitors have real time information on who is winning and by how much.
There will be 2,000-meter events, 1,000-meter team events in which four rowers compete as one boat, and a new 30-minute event. These events have registration fees.
The event is free to watch.
