KWCH spoke with Calvin Cupp, head coach for Shocker Rowing, who explained the history behind the Shocker Rowing program and how it has evolved. Cupp also shared what the program offers to students and the community, including the Boats & Bikes business.
KWCH also spoke with students in the program, who discussed the experience and their motivations to join the team.
“That student experience as an athletic experience is still at the core of it,” Cupp said. “… We’re pretty integrated into what’s happening here (in Wichita), because we want to make an impact, not just with our student athletes, but also with our community and the citizens.”
