Texas women’s rowing finally has a national championship, two years after finishing runner-up in 2019. 

With a time of 6:17.387 in the varsity eights grand final, the Longhorn women took first in the race and first overall, winning their first national title in the NCAA rowing championship.

Texas, Stanford and Washington finished in a three-way tie with 126 points in the standings, with varsity eights’ results being the tie-breaker. Stanford and Washington finished second and third respectively in the varsity eights, while Michigan, Rutgers and Virginia rounded out the final heat.

The grand final for the varsity fours saw Washington win in a time of 7:02.12 with Stanford coming in second and Texas third. 

Due to inclement weather, the awards ceremony was cancelled.
