The Iowa rowing team released its 2017-18 schedule on Monday.
“The schedule is really good,” said head coach Andrew Carter in a release. “It’s very intense with every weekend having teams that finished in the top 20 at the end of last season. It is, by far, the toughest schedule we’ve put together since I’ve been here. It’s got a lot of exciting programs and a huge challenge for our team, but it’s necessary for this group to take the next step.”
The Hawkeyes take on opponents in the Big Ten, Big 12, Pac 12, ACC, and the Ivy League.
“I’m excited for every weekend. Every weekend is going to be a pretty intense outing,” Carter said in a release. “We open at the Pac-12 Invitational with three Pac-12 schools, all of which finished in the top-tier of their league last year.”
Iowa fans will get their first opportunity to see the rowing team in Iowa City on Oct. 6, the first day of a two-day scrimmage with Wisconsin and Indiana..
