HTCC sent five boats to the Schuylkill River today for Day 1 of racing at the Stotesbury Cup Regatta, advancing three crews to tomorrow's semi-finals!
Ella and Julie started the day in the girls junior double. These girls have been getting faster everyday this season, and they continued today with their best race so far. The girls were unable to advance to the finals, but we are expecting big things from them as the go forward into the summer and next season. Great job this year girls!
Parker, Aidan, Walter, and Vince were next up in the boys junior quad. Due to an unfortunate injury yesterday, Davey had to end his season early and Parker jumped out of the single and into the quad. Even though they have practiced once in this lineup, the boys had a fantastic time-trial and finished in 8th place, advancing to the semi-finals! They will race at 8:30 tomorrow.
Angela, Olivia, Kara, and Sophia came next for the Hawks in the girls senior quad. The girls raced hard in a tough event, finishing in seventh place and advancing to the semi-finals tomorrow. They will race at 10:15 tomorrow morning.
Erik, Dan, Luke, and Duff followed right behind the girls quad and finished in fifth place in the time trial for the boys senior quad. The boys had their best time of the season so far and are closing the gap on the top finishers! They will race in the semi-finals at 10:20 tomorrow morning.
Rebecca finished the day for the Hawks in the girls senior single. Rebecca put in a great race but was unable to advance to tomorrow. She has been gaining speed every time she puts the single in the water and we look forward to seeing her race next weekend at SRAA's.
All racing is live streaming through http://stotesburycupregatta.com so if you are unable to attend the regatta tune in to cheer on the Hawks from home.
