HTCC completed a successful day at the Navy Day Regatta yesterday. The regatta was the first test of the season for the varsity athletes and the first race ever for the novices.
The varsity team had a busy day with each athlete racing twice. Ella and Olivia put in a solid race against elite level athletes in the womens open double event. Olivia then went on to finish in fifth place in the high school single. Aidan and Vince, and Dave and Walter also raced in open doubles before teaming up to finish in 12th place out of 37 entries in the high school quad. Erik, Luke, Dan, and Duff started the day by finishing third in the open quad. Luke and Duff then went on to win the high school double with Erik and Dan following right behind them in second place!
Since there were no novice events this weekend, all five HTCC novice crews entered the racing world competing against varsity boats and performed extremely well! All 12 boys raced in the high school quad event making it down the difficult course without incident and even passed some other crews along the way! Tristan, Will, Jack M, and Alex started down the course followed by John, Jack H, Eric, and Mason, and then Nolan, Mike, Jack S, and Matt. All three crews had excellent races! Great job boys!
Gillian and Mackenzie were the first to go off for the novice girls, racing in the womens high school double. They had an excellent first race, beating nine other crews! Emily, Alex, Portia, and Brooke took to the water for their first race in the womens high school quad. They put together a great race against some of the top varsity crews in the area and held their own. Great job girls!
Overall the coaches were extremely pleased with the results and look forward to seeing how the team progresses in two weeks at the Head of the Schuylkill Regatta.
Practice is normal time on Monday.
