I shot the K-State and Kansas rowing teams in the Sunflower Showdown at Wyandotte Lake in Kansas City, Kansas on April 7, 2012. Hundreds of fans watched the event in the cool, rainy weather. K-State dominated Kansas by winning all five races to keep the Kansas Cup. K-State’s first varsity eight boat defeated Kansas by nearly 11 seconds in the final race crossing the finish line in 7:13.4. K-State’s 1V8 boat was named as the Conference USA Boat of the Week.
