Congratulations go out to our rowing team as they competed last Saturday in the FSRA West District Championships.
A gold medal performance was put on by Jack Muller who finished first in the Junior Men's Single event, covering the 1500 meter course in a time of 6:06. Leading for the majority of the race, Muller was able to hold off a challenge at the end and finished 7 seconds ahead of his nearest competitor.
The Women's Varsity Double, composed of senior Madyson Melendez and junior Isabel Hauber also excelled, capturing a hard fought second place as they finished just 3 seconds ahead of the third place boat.
In the Freshmen Men's 8+ event our boys also medaled, taking the bronze away from a Sarasota crew entry who were penalized and lost their advantage.
Our Men's Varsity 4 fought hard in their event and though continuing to improve, were unable to medal.
The team competes April 8th at the FSRA Sculling Championships at Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota.
