Texas Rowing team celebrates winning the Big 12 Championship

The UT Tower will shine with burnt orange lights Sunday, May 19 to celebrate Texas Rowing winning the Big 12 Championship.

No. 1 Texas Rowing swept six races in record-setting fashion at the Big 12 Championship to win a ninth consecutive conference crown on Sunday morning at Nathan Benderson Park. The victory marked the 13th conference title in program history and the sweep was the Longhorns’ ninth consecutive at the conference regatta.

As part of campus tradition, the Tower is bathed in burnt orange lighting from top-to-bottom when a University of Texas Athletics team wins a conference championship.
