A Woodson boat finished first at the Virginia Scholastic Rowing Championships on the Occoquan Saturday, May 14! Women’s Second-4 posted the fastest time in the storm-interrupted Varsity State Championship regatta: Kristen Wahlbeck, Rowan Sprouse, Rachel Hundley, Joelle Perry, and Carolyn Wong (coxswain).

Women’s Junior-8 finished third in their event for the bronze! Elizabeth Field, Brooke Leech, Gabriella Hayes, Elizabeth Giglia, Meryn Holtslander, Rose van der Horst, Jenna Hissong, Kathryn Taheri, and Haley Cole (coxswain)

Two boats finished 5th overall: Men’s Second-8 and Women’s First-4, who won their Semifinal heat.

Men’s First-8 narrowly missed Finals by 1.2 seconds; unfortunately, the Men’s Junior-4 and Women’s Lightweight-8 were unable to compete due to the conditions.

We congratulate & thank the seniors on their final Occoquan regatta: Co-captains Val Jack, Joe Killion, Rita Bodrog, and Coryn Mayer, Griffin Adams, James Magee, Nico Marucchi, and Fin Merrill.

Next week: the fabled Stotesbury Regatta in Philadelphia!
