HTCC competed in Day 1 of the USRowing Mid-Atlantic Championship today with five crews moving on to finals tomorrow. Tomorrow’s schedule is at the bottom of the post. All crews must arrive two hours prior to race time.
Rebecca started the day off in the single and put in a great race, finishing just outside of advancing to the semis. Duff followed a few minutes behind in the single, finishing in second place to move to the semis. In the semi-final, Duff put on an inspiring performance, coming back from several boat lengths out of the race and sprinting back to finish in third place, with the fourth overall time, to advance to finals tomorrow.
Vince and Walter came down the course next for the Hawks. In a race full of seniors and varsity rowers, the boys raced hard but fell short of advancing.
Angela, Olivia, Kara, and Sophia followed next, finishing in second place in their heat and then first place in their semi-final this evening. The girls are improving every race and look to continue that streak as they go into the finals tomorrow with the second best overall time in the semis.
Erik, Dan, Luke, and Parker came next, finishing in second place in their heat, well ahead of third place, and go into the finals tomorrow with the third fastest overall time. The boys quad is also getting faster every day and are looking for a great performance tomorrow.
Ella and Julie were the last of the crews to race in the heats for the Hawks. Although Julie fell prior to the race and cut her lip, she used it as motivation, spitting blood and scaring the competition as they rowed through the third place crew, earning a place in tomorrow’s finals.
Davey and Aidan will be going straight to the finals tomorrow for their first race of the weekend.
Great job today! GO HAWKS!!!
