First race down! Haddon township competed in the second Manny Flick today on the Schuylkill river.
Brie and Rachel raced first in the girl's JV double category and finished with a time of 6:26.30. The girls put their talents together to finish a successful 1500 meters and sported positive attitudes before and after the race.
Joey, Joel, Tyler, and Dan M finished 4th in their heat in 5:04.96. The boys showed off their focus and drive by stepping into an unfamiliar lineup. Although challenging at first, they stepped up this week and were able to row strong together.
The hawks saw gold in the girl's lightweight double race! Angela and Noa worked through some tough water by the Strawberry Mansion bridge and still managed to finish 27 second before the competition. Though establishing a comfortable gap early in the race, the girls still gave 100%mall the way through and motivated themselves by pushing towards a PR time.
Lauren rowed hard among the varsity singles and finished with a time of 6:38.85. She's been working hard these past few weeks and quickly getting back into racing-mode after overcoming an injury this winter.
Ryan "Springer", Dan W, Keaton, and Noah finished 4th in the boy's varsity quad category in 5 minutes flat. The boys took HT's newest boat, the Tenacity, out for its first race. The crew members demonstrated their own tenacity as they lined up against tough competition.
Thank you, parents, for the continual support and cheers you send from the shoreline! We look forward to seeing what next week brings as we return to the Schuylkill for the next Flick! The highlight will be on the novices as they are introduced to their first spring racing experience; we can't wait to show off their hardwork.
