HTCC finished up a fantastic weekend at the SRAA National Championship on Cooper River yesterday, coming away with two medals, including a gold in the freshman girls quad!
Alex Tingley started the day off for the Hawks in the girls varsity single semi-finals. Although she didn't advance to the finals she had a great race and we are looking forward to seeing her achieve great things in the coming years!
Emily Donohue and Morgan Van Dexter came next in the girls varsity double semi-final. They had one of their best races of the year, finishing in fourth place. They just missed out on making the finals.
In the first final of the weekend for the Hawks, Fiona Steele, Maya Jacobsen, Olivia Hollingsworth, and Sara Ladik came to the line as one of the favorites. They finished with the second fasted time in the heats and came into the final looking to take the gold. They did just that as they pulled away from the field halfway through the race and continuing on to a dominating 8 second victory, earning themselves a gold medal and the title of NATIONAL CHAMPIONS!!
The boys varsity quad of Aidan Cronin, Vince Fitzpatrick, Jack Haigh and Jack Savell went into the finals with the fourth fastest time in the heats. They knew they would need to throw down an amazing piece to medal in lane 6. The boys started down but fought back, walking through Conestoga in the second half of the race and finishing in third place, earning a bronze medal!
Great job to all athletes that participated this weekend, and all of the other athletes who's work each day of the season pushed the whole team to be as fast as it could!
The Hawks will return to the Schuylkill in two weeks for the National Schools Championship Regatta. GO HAWKS!!!
