This past weekend, the girls traveled to Wayland, MA for a windy day of racing against some highly competitive crews in the Wayland-Weston Invitational on Lake Cochituate. With 8 teams competing, the top 2 boats from the heat races in the morning advanced to the finals in the afternoon. For the girls, 3 of the 5 boats competed in the finals in the afternoon.
The 1st boat started the day off with a solid win in their heat in the morning and continued to keep the momentum going into the afternoon where they earned a gold medal beating Winsor, Nobles and Bromfield!
The 2nd boat also won their heat in the morning and had a great race in the afternoon where they earned a silver medal crossing the line after Nobles and ahead of Winsor and St. Mark’s!
The 3rd boat was very competitive in their race and was in a battle for 2nd place with Bromfield all the way down the course. They remained just inches ahead of Bromfield but could not hold that lead across the finish line and finished in 3rd place!
The 4th boat had a solid race in the morning and finished 2nd which advanced them to the finals! With tough competition and wind in the finals, the girls showed great effort and finished in 4th place behind Nobles, Winsor and Bromfield.
The 5th boat also showed great effort and continue to make improvements. The girls finished in 4th place just behind Nobles, Bromfield and Winsor.
All in all, the girls had a great day of racing on Sunday and keep progressing and learning as the season continues!
