The Iowa rowing team will conclude the fall season with the Head of the Iowa this on Oct. 28. It will be the Hawkeyes’ third meet of the season.

This time, the athletes will be able to race on their home waters. The regatta’s course includes a 2.5-mile stretch of the Iowa River, starting at approximately 10 a.m.

The Hawkeyes will enter the women’s varsity 8 race, along with the women’s varsity 4, women’s pairs, and novice 8.

This will be the largest field for the Hawkeyes this season. The event will include Creighton, Drake, Iowa State, Marquette, Colorado, Minnesota, Notre Dame, and Wisconsin. The Hawkeye Rowing Club will also compete unattached to any college program.

“We are looking forward to a great regatta,” head coach Steve Pritzker said in a release.

The Hawkeyes finished with five first-place titles in the Head of the Des Moines in late September, then nabbed four more top-10 finishes in two events at the Head of the Rock last week.

The Head of the Iowa can be viewed from the riverbanks in most of the UI’s central campus and from the Park Road, Hancher, and IMU bridges. Events will also be held in City Park, including a concession stand and T-shirt sale.
