The HT Hawks were welcomed to the Schuylkill on Sunday with warm weather and calm conditions. The morning started off with Sophia, Christine, Julie, and Ella racing in the JV Quad. They held their own in an experienced category and finished their race in 7:13:14. The girls are excited to work hard this week perfecting a sprint strategy for next week’s race. Stepping out in a new lineup, Kara and Rachel raced in the Varsity Double yesterday. Their focus and determination led them down the race course in 6:02.6. Next up, Angela, Lauren, Olivia H, and Noa took on the other Varsity Quads. The girls pulled ahead of their local competition and finished in 2nd place with a time of 5:20.43.
The boys took on the afternoon races. Matteo raced in the gig among other JV Singles and finished his 2K in 7:51.45. Matteo has been working hard and improving each day in the gig, and he is up for the challenging of racing in the single next week! In the boy’s JV Quad, Paul, Parker, Walter, and Dan raced down the Schuylkill in 5:35.55. These guys have some serious power; they looked strong and aggressive as they charged down the river. Next up in the Varsity doubles, Joey and Noah finished their race in 5:45.66 while Noah and Joey finished in the next heat in 6:07.91. These guys have embraced their new lineups and proved to be valuably versatile on race day. The last race for the hawks took place in the evening with Erik, Ryan, Luke, and Keaton competing among the top Varsity Quads. They raced down the course in 5:07.08, not far behind first and second place.
Thank you to the Fanelle’s , John & Krista, for safely driving the trailer to and from the river. Thank you, family and friends, for providing a wonderful food tent.
We will continue to improve our capabilities and build our strength this week in practice. Enjoy your day off tomorrow, and be ready to row Wednesday at 5am.
