Head Coach’s Recap

Polar Bear Regatta


               With the infamous season interrupted by snow now in full swing, Woodson’s Varsity crews hit the water for their first races of the campaign. The Women’s 1st 4+ comprised of seniors, Katie Wahlbeck, Gail Crunkhorn, Erin Hubbard and Erika Killion and led by future Bucknell Coxswain Kerry Baker kicked off the racing season with a strong performance in their category finishing 3rd overall with a time of 6:14.01. The Women’s Junior 8+, (Coxed by Maddie Henris, rowers: Abie Kolls, Rita Bodrog, Hannah Fisher, Hannah Haines, Courtney Becker, Coryn Mayer, Pele Solell, Sierra Cole) won their race with a time of 6:11.50, anchored by returning Junior 8+ State Champions Abie Kolls and Hannah Haines. The men then hit the water in the 2nd 8+ category. Stroked by David Torgersen (Coxed by Jax Ohashi, rowers:  Joe Killion, Alex Welenson, Jacob Babb, Valentine Jack, Adam Sami, James Magee, Finn Merrill) they brought home another win for Woodson with a time of 5:14.00. The Men’s 1st 8+, (Coxed by Ian Bushey, rowers: Grayson Bishop, Bret Wagner, Andrew Greer, Adam Chen, Brandon Sagawinia, Lucas Battisti, Ryan Applin, Thomas Holtslander), capped off a fantastic day of debuts for the Woodson team, winning their race with a time of 5:01.70.


                Please join us next week for the Regional Park Regatta where almost double the number of participants are expected. The team looks forward to welcoming our first-year rowers to the course. Athletes are to report to the boathouse at 6:30am with racing set to conclude probably around 3:00pm. A special shout out to team manager Helena Klavin for all her assistance today!


Pull for Woodson!
