The club finished the 2015 season in fine form today at the USRowing Youth National Championship. Both quads had their best races of the season on the most important day of the season.
Angela, Lauren, Olivia, and Noa had an incredible race to take second place in the C Final. Although leading early, the girls slipped back slightly coming through the second 500m. They made an incredible move at the halfway point of the race and pushed through the pain to hold pace and even increase rate all the way through the finish. With their finish the girls secured their place as the 14th fastest youth womens quad in the nation!
Erik, Springer, Luke, and Keaton followed the girls with another fantastic race In the C Final. The boys showed great faith in their race plan and their ability when they held their rate despite being down off the start. The boys were in sixth place for a large portion of the race but made a huge move halfway through the race, gradually walking back through the fifth and fourth place crews and sprinting their way into third place. This result puts the boys as the 15th fastest youth mens quad in the nation!
Congratulations to both crews on a tremendous season!! Go Hawks!
