UT Women's Rowing team rowing.

The UT Tower will glow with burnt orange lights on Sunday, May 19 in honor of Texas Rowing winning the Big 12 Championship. The No. 4 University of Texas Rowing team claimed its fifth consecutive Big 12 title and ninth overall.

“I was really impressed with the way everyone raced today,” said head coach Dave O’Neill. “The overall speed in the conference increased this year, so each boat was ready to go flat out, which is what they did. This conference win is the culmination of months of hard work by a lot people, and I’m truly grateful for the effort by everyone.”
