HTCC had a fantastic Saturday on the Cooper River at the Garden State Scholastic Championship Regatta! Out of the nine crews racing, seven came away with medals, and three rowed through the finish line as state champions!!
Emily Donohue was the first to race in the finals in the womens senior single event. The single is one of the most difficult boats to race and Emily put together a great piece, finishing in second place to win a silver medal, and earned a spot at the SRAA National Championship Regatta!
Quinn Johnston and Kerry Dietrich were next up for the Hawks. These two are both novices but they didn't let that stop them from earning a state championship medal in the womens junior double! After a great win in the heats, the girls raced themselves to a silver medal in the finals!
Mason Weaver and Matt Weller also won their heat in the mens junior double on Saturday morning. They looked strong coming into the finals, and had a solid fourth place finish!
