According to a March 2 Connect Texas article, the University of Texas Board of Regents approved a $107m plan to expand and improve various athletic facilities throughout the campus as well as the Blanton Museum of Art and the George L. Sanchez Building.
Included in the plans are a “$60-million practice facility for the Texas men’s and women’s basketball teams, and the women’s rowing team,” according to Connect Texas.
The facility will include “basketball courts, rooms for rowing ergometers, strength and conditioning, sports medicine, players’ lounges, meeting rooms, and coach and staff offices,” according to the University of Texas Board of Regents meeting notes from the February 26-27 session.
In addition to the practice facility, the Texas Athletics master plan also includes “modest upgrades at Texas Rowing Center.”
The University of Texas’ women’s rowing program currently rows out of the Texas Rowing Center on Ladybird Lake.
