HTCC had a fantastic weekend at the SRAA National Championship! Parker and Vince started off the weekend by putting in a solid race in their heat and qualifying themselves for the semis on Saturday. They boys looked strong coming down the race course in their semi but were unable to advance to the finals. Great job guys!
Mackenzie, Gillian, Alex, and Brooke were next up for the Hawks as they raced in the girls JV quad event. These girls are all novices and held even with the top crews through most of the race. Although they didn't advance the coaching staff was very excited to see how well they performed against top crews with much more experience! Excellent race girls!
Matt, Nick, Jack H, and Jack S won their heat on Saturday in convincing fashion, advancing them to the finals a few hours later. In the final, they faced a tough crew from Belen Jesuit in Miami and finished just behind, winning a silver medal!! Although the boys were hoping for gold this is an enormous accomplishment and they should be very proud! Great job guys!
Luke, Erik, Dan, and Duff were the last crew to race on Friday for the Hawks. They came in second place in their heat with the third best overall time, qualifying for the finals. The boys put together one of the best races of their season in the final, topping Brophy (who beat them in heats) and finishing with a silver medal!! This is the best finish HT has ever had in the boys varsity quad at SRAA's! This is also the first time HT has won double silver medals!
Luke, Erik, Dan, and Duff will head down to Sarasota, Florida in a few weeks to race for the USRowing Youth National Championship.
