1. NEW: SRAA Nationals Summary. What an amazing weekend! We are proud of the ladies and their performance at Nationals. Thank you to all the ladies for a great trip and a huge thank you to all the parent volunteers and the coaches that made the weekend possible. For those that let us borrow coolers, we will arrange a time to get them back to you after Nationals. The trip also cost less than planned and we are working the details to arrange refunds to those who attended.

Perhaps a clarification of this event. This is not just another regatta. This is an invitational regatta where boats are invited based on their individual performance in the qualifying regattas listed below.

The qualifying championship regattas include:
  • Florida State Championship 
  • Midwest Championship 
  • Garden State Scholastic Championship 
  • New York State Scholastic Championship 
  • Philadelphia City Championship 
  • Virginia State Championship 
  • Washington Metropolitan Interscholastic Rowing Association 
In our specific case, our Women’s Junior Eight and Women’s Lightweight Eight qualified for an invitation based upon their performance at the Virginia Scholastic championship. In both categories, only the top three boats from each qualifying championships are eligible for invitation.

The Women’s Lightweight 8 (W-LT-8) placed 1st in their heat with a time of 5:13.882, the second fastest time in the W-LT-8 heats advancing them to the finals! They fought hard in the finals missing third place by one second but are a very respectable 4th in the Nation. Congratulations to J. Hissong, J. Kim, M. Korn, M. Rowe, R. Smith, G. Schneider, K. Taheri, K. Howard, and H. Cole (Coxswain).

The Women’s Junior 8 (W-JR-8) placed 5th in their heat with a time of 5:39.101. Even though they did not advance to the semi-finals, they remain the fastest boat from Virginia! We congratulate C. Moore, N. Curtis, A. Pesansky, C. Middleton, S. Boucher, I. Kogan, N. Moran, J. Heimbigner, and L. Benjelloun (Coxswain).

Here are all of the results for all of the races. Check out photos from the weekend on our WTW Crew photo page. If anyone has any photos of the team they would like to share and that we could post on our site, please send them to wtwcrewphotographer@gmail.com.
