A new era begins.
With the close of ACRAs today, there are only two words that could possibly be used to describe our performance this weekend: Unprecedented success.
We were one of only three teams at the regatta who put a boat in the grand finals of the biggest races of the weekend, the 1V, 2V, 1N, and 2N. The 2V took 6th, the 1N finished 4th, the 2N won themselves a bronze medal, and the eleventh seeded 1V took 5th in the nation.
Our 3V also raced and finished an impressive 13th overall in the 2V category. We fielded a 4x and a 1x as well who finished 10th and 12th respectively.
Overall, the team finished 5th in terms of team points.
As much as our seven seniors will be missed, the core of our team next year will remain intact, and with an incredibly deep freshman class, we will be back next year stronger, and with a vengeance.
Until we're taking every top spot, whether it be in the four big categories, small boats, or team points, we won't stop fighting.
The future burns bright.
