The Hawks had a strong showing on the Cooper in day one of the Frostbite/Braxton doubleheader.
The morning started off with Varsity girls Maddie and Lauren pulling an impressive race to finish 1st in their heat of the Women's HS 2x. Angela and Noa followed suit, besting the field by 39 seconds. HT Varsity Girls pulled the fastest times out of all four heats of Women's HS 2xs, making them 1st and 2nd out of 18 crews.
On the men's side, Keaton and Joey put up a good fight in the Men's HS 2x, finishing 4th in a competitive field. They put together a solid race and rowed hard until the end. Also racing in the Men's HS 2x were Novices Erik and Fritz who finished 5th in their heat. Erik and Fritz weren't afraid to race hard against a field of more experienced crews. They rowed well and managed rough conditions with confidence. Good work boys!
In the afternoon events the Hawks saw gold again in the Men's HS 4x. Crew members Joel, Noah, Dan, and Tyler jumped out ahead of the field early on and rowed a clean race all the way to the end. Also racing in the HS Men's 4x were Novices Nick, Mike, Colin, and Liam. The Novice Boys raced well against the more experienced crews, showing their focus and fearlessness with each stroke.
Finally the Girls HS 4x of Amanda, Olivia E., Kayla, and Rachel finished 5th in a competitive field. Junior Rachel took on a leadership role as the bow person of the mostly novice crew. The girls demonstrated their poise and tenacity as they lined up against the more experienced varsity crews. They rowed well and are looking forward to another race tomorrow.
Congrats to everyone on a successful Frostbite Regatta!
Let's finish out the Fall season with a strong performance at tomorrow's Braxton Regatta!
