EVENT CENTRAL PAGE

THIS WEEK: The University of Iowa women's rowing team will host the annual Head of the Iowa regatta on Sunday, Oct. 27 at 10 a.m. at City Park and the P. Sue Beckwith Boathouse. The event was originally scheduled to be at Lake MacBride in Solon, Iowa, but due to extenuating circumstances, Sunday's regatta was moved to the boathouse. It will be the final fall competition for the Hawkeyes.

THE RACE: Races will run from 10 a.m. to approximately 3 p.m. (CT). A mixture of men's and women's teams from different colleges and universities will compete. The schools that will be competing include Colorado, Colorado State, Creighton, Drake, Iowa, Iowa State, Marquette, Minnesota, Nebraska, Notre Dame, St. Olaf, and Wisconsin.

Last Event: The Hawkeyes hosted Indiana University in a two-day scrimmage on Oct. 11-12 at the P. Sue Beckwith Boathouse.

In Friday's competition, Iowa's 1V8+ boat took first place, 18 seconds in front of the second place Hoosiers. In 2V8+ action, Iowa took first place 13 seconds ahead of Indiana. The wave concluded with Indiana winning the V4+. Iowa's first boat came in 11 seconds behind the Hoosiers, and the second boat for the Hawkeyes followed 48 seconds later.

In the second wave, Indiana's 1V8+ boat took first place, topping Iowa by 31 seconds. Indiana's 2V8+ boat also came in first, beating Iowa by 14 seconds.

The evening concluded with the V4+, as Indiana came in first in front of two Iowa boats. The first Iowa boat came in 16 seconds behind, and the third Iowa boat followed 1:16 later.

In Saturday competition, Iowa's 1V8+ boat went 3-1-1 against the Hoosiers and the 2V8+ went 1-4. In the second wave, Iowa's 1V4+ boat went 2-3 against the Hoosiers. In the final wave of the scrimmage, both the 1N8+ and 2N8+ Iowa boats went 3-0.

NEW HAWKEYE IN CHARGE: Andrew Carter was named the third head coach in program history for the University of Iowa rowing program in July 2013. He is in his 24th year overall and his 17th in the collegiate coaching ranks. His previous stints include the Univeristy of Miami (2009-13), Clemson University (2008-09), Bathes College in Lewiston, Maine (2000-08), the University of Southern California (1999-00), and Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. (1996-99). During his career, Carter has earned more than 50 championship medals, and over the last 12 years, he has coached seven All-Americans and 24 National Scholar-Athletes. He turned Miami into a nationally-ranked program, and led Clemson to its first-ever Atlantic Coast Conference title and NCAA Championship appearance.

Carter is a U.S. Rowing Level III Coach and a Rowing Canada Aviron Level IV Coach, as well as a National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) Master Instructor and Master Coach Evaluator.

Carter, who is married to Kim and a father to Mason, earned his bachelor's degree in kinesiology-biomechanics from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and a master's degree in kinesiology-biomechanics from the University of Western Ontario.

Quoting Coach Carter: "This will be my first Head of the Iowa, and I'm looking forward to it," Carter stated. "Not many collegiate programs get to host a fall head race so this is pretty special. Racing at home is a nice way to finish a season. It doesn't hurt that we'll have an opportunity to see more Big Ten speed in the pool that weekend."
