White Rock Rowing is hosting a regatta this weekend
White Rock Rowing is hosting a regatta this weekend that welcomes teams from all over the United States.
The team is also hosting a lawn party near the boathouse, and the entire event is scheduled for Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
White Rock Rowing has gained national attention, particularly through its performance in recent competitions. Naomi Geiger and Isabella Cooper won the Young National Championships in the U-17 women’s pair in June.
Earlier this month we wrote about how rowers fared at competitions in Boston and Austin. In Austin, the women’s U-17 4+ team won first place, finishing nearly a full minute ahead of runner-up.
This is what the coaches say about the athletes:
Men’s head coach Chris Leonard said, “The performance we’ve seen out there is a very positive sign of the future of White Rock Rowing. We’ll be taking home a lot more medals in the near future. These athletes have the talent and the hunger to win tough competitions like this. “
Women’s head coach Annie Couwenhoven said, “Seeing the more experienced teens encourage and support the beginners was absolutely the best – the camaraderie is palpable and one of the greatest assets of this team.”
The White Rock Boathouse is located at 2920 White Rock Road.
