2 Woodson boats finished in the Top 10 against the country’s best at the SRAA National Championships in Nashport, Ohio this weekend!

The Women’s Junior-8 finished 8th overall, using a great sprint to advance to the Semifinals, where they faced the Silver and Bronze medalists. The J8 recorded the top finish by a Virginia school – ahead of TC Williams (who WTW beat by open water in the Semifinal) and Langley – and was the 4th fastest public school! Elizabeth Field, Brooke Leech, Gabriella Hayes, Elizabeth Giglia, Meryn Holtslander, Rose van der Horst, Jenna Hissong, Kathryn Taheri, and Haley Cole (coxswain).

The Women’s Lightweight-8 posted the 9th fastest time, the second among Virginia schools, trailing only the Bronze medalist TC Williams. The Lights rowed a spirited race to defeat Lake Braddock and Yorktown for the first time all season! Co-Captain Coryn Mayer, Trini Hong, Reagan Smith, Anna Field, Sierra Boucher, Sara Chan, Paige Evans, Sophie Mills, and Caroline Hoskins (coxswain).

The Women’s First-4 drew a fast heat against the best of California, Illinois, New York, and Tennessee, rowed well, and finished 21st overall. Co-Captain Rita Bodrog, Claire Hutcheson, Hannah Fisher, Courtney Becker, and Erika Schneider (coxswain).

We would like to congratulate all of our Nationals rowers, and especially thank our seniors Rita and Coryn – way to go!

Pull for Woodson!
