Virginia Scholastic Rowing Championships is always a tough place to medal, and our novices met that challenge once again; very impressive (especially for the women, since three of their athletes only tried crew for the first time in February). For those unfamiliar with rowing filmed from this angle, the action gets exciting around 3:30. Of course if you’re in the boat, it’s exciting the whole 6-7min.
They looked good in heats too. Hopefully this performance helps us recruit a big group of novices for next year. We want many more student athletes to have this opportunity.
