HTCC participated in Philadelphia City Championship yesterday on the Schuylkill River despite the hard rain. The club advanced 5 of 7 crews to the finals and came away with two medals!
The boys (Erik, Dan, Luke, and Parker) and girls (Angela, Sophia, Olivia, and Rebecca) varsity quads raced hard through the time trials, earning positions in the grand finals against very tough competition. Both quads came away with fifth place finishes.
In the JV doubles, Ella and Julie, and Vince and Walter had fantastic time trials. Although they finished out of the time standard for the finals, they pushed closer to the top crews than they have been all year and continue to improve each day!
Despite only practicing in the single a few times, Kara had a tremendous race in the time trial to earn a place in the final of the womens varsity single -- this is an extremely competitive race and making the final is very impressive!
Dave and Aidan in the boys freshman double came away with the first medal of the day and the first medal of their careers! After finishing the time trial in second place, the boys stayed strong in the afternoon and held their position, coming away with a silver medal! Way to go boys!
Duff earned the second and final medal of the day for the club in the mens varsity single. After finishing fourth in the time trial, Paul knew he had to really push to get into the medals and he did it. He started strong and finished stronger, taking away a bronze medal in very difficult and competitive event. Great job Duff!
HTCC will return to the race course next Saturday for the USRowing Mid-Atlantic Championship Regatta. Stay posted later this week for information on lineups and race times.
