The Oklahoma rowing team was elected to the 2013 NCAA Rowing Championship, set for May 31-June 2 in Indianapolis.
Oklahoma earned an automatic bid to the championship by winning its first Conference USA title on May 18. The Sooners also won their first Big 12 championship on May 4, though with five Big 12 schools sponsoring rowing, the conference is one team shy of an automatic qualifier.
The Sooners earned the 17th seed in the varsity eight and will race in the first of four heats against No. 1 USC, No. 8 Yale, No. 9 Harvard and No. 16 Washington State.
In the second varsity eight, No. 14 OU will compete against No. 3 USC, No. 6 Princeton, No. 11 Notre Dame, No. 19 Gonzaga and No. 22 Marist in its heat.
The varsity four pits the No. 17 Sooners against No. 1 California, No. 8 Wisconsin, No. 9 Washington State and No. 16 Cornell.
The Sooners were busy helping out victims of the Moore tornado as their NCAA berth was announced. The team, staff and the rowers' parents and pooled together nearly $2,000 in donations. Then they went shopping for the displaced families that are temporarily staying in OU housing.
