A last minute change to the schedule has allowed Shocker Rowing to have a home regatta in its spring 2013 season.

The race is now set for 9 a.m. Sunday, May 19, on the Arkansas River in downtown Wichita.

Spectators can watch from the Lewis Street bridge or either bank of the Arkansas River between the Lincoln Street dam and the Douglas Street bridge.

Parking will be available at 300 W. Indianapolis.

Originally the May 19 race was supposed to be in Manhattan at Kansas State University's home site.

Shocker Rowing will be racing Kansas State crew as both teams prepare for the American Collegiate Rowing Association National Championships May 25-26 in Lake Lanier, Ga., site of the 1996 Olympic Rowing venue.

At both the May 19 race and at Nationals, the Shockers will be racing a men's varsity eight, women's varsity eight, men's novice four, women's single and two men's singles. Shocker Rowing will race a men's double on May 19 in addition to a women's four.

The women's varsity eight has been ranked fifth in the nation for the past three weeks, the highest ranking for the Shockers since 2008.
