Rhinebeck Crew braved the chill and wind to compete in the O’Neil Race this past weekend at West Point in New York.
The regatta’s highlights included first place finishes by our Lightweight Girls 4 boat and our Junior Girls 4 boat. We also earned a 2nd place finish for the Boys Lightweight 4, 3rd place finish for the Girls Varsity 8 and 4th place finishes for the Boys Varsity 4 and Novice Girls 4.
Our Coaches were extremely pleased with all the rowers and are looking forward to a strong showing at the New York State Championships next weekend in Saratoga! The gratitude that the rowers showed their parents and the volunteers at the close of the day was impressive and well-received. We continue to be impressed with the overall positive attitude of our team – no other sport defines teamwork quite like rowing.
Thanks as always to everyone who pitched in at our Rhinebeck Crew trailer site, especially those who arrived before sunrise and those that stayed until the end!
