Allison Tuxhorn in Oklahoma

The 1st Novice 8 boat from the Kansas State University rowing team brought home the gold October 2nd from Oklahoma City, OK. This was the last competition of the fall season, and they definitely finished strong. The team beat the boat that came in second by over a minute with a time of 15:00.932.

Although this does not relate to taxes or accounting in any way, it was a very exciting win for Swindoll, Janzen, Hawk & Loyd, LLC. Allison Tuxhorn, the daughter of our very own Rick Tuxhorn, is on this first place winning team! Rick's wife Barb was able to watch the big win, while Rick was watching their youngest daughter Madison play volleyball. Needless to say, they have some very talented daughters.

A short video titled "Rowing - Behind the Scenes in Oklahoma City" has been posted on the K-State Athletic website. View it at http://www.kstatesports.com/allaccess/?media=268414. You can catch a glimpse of Allison about four seconds into the video. The K-State women's rowing team will start competing again in March, with their first race scheduled to be in Austin, TX.
