The Hawks wrapped up a very successful weekend today on Lake Mercer with a weekend total of 5 gold medals!
On Saturday, HTCC raced in the Philadelphia Frostbite regatta. Lauren and Olivia started the day off with blast, winning gold eight seconds ahead of second place Newport RC. A few hours later, Lauren jumped back into the water to join Kara, Kayla, and Ella in a strong performance in the womens quad. The girls took third place in what the coaches felt was their best rowing of the week! Great job girls!!
The boys continued the club's hot streak only minutes after the girls crossed the finish line. In flight one of the mens quad, Luke, Springer, Keaton, and Noah crossed the line in first place, three seconds ahead of Malvern Prep. In the very next race, Erik, Tyler, Dan, and Joey took the gold and Mike, Liam, Walter, and Duff finished in third place in flight 2 of the mens quad!
The Hawks came into the Braxton Regatta eager to continue where they left off at the Frostbite. Lauren and Olivia raced strong to finish in third place in the womens double. Colin and Duff followed shortly after and put together a great performance despite having only rowed together once prior to the regatta. Kara, Kayla, Ella, and Olivia showed great character and heart during their final in the womens quad. An early crab forced the lineup to stop for a considerable amount of time. The girls picked right back up where they left off, however, and were able to finish the race, closing a large amount of the gap they lost! In the last races of the weekend, the boys were able to repeat their performance from the Frostbite. Erik, Tyler, Dan, and Joey took first place, and Mike, Liam, Walter, and Duff finished third in final 1 of the mens quad. In final 2, Luke, Springer, Keaton, and Noah took home another gold, this time ahead of New Canaan.
Congratulations to every crew!
