Props to Abby!

2005 Lewis & Clark Graduate Abby Broughton had a pretty good weekend. Abby, part of the Pocock Elite racing squad out of Seattle, won all of her races at the Spring Speed Order event this weekend. She won the Lightweight time trial, the A Final for the ligthweight single, and then won the Lightweight double on Sunday.

Not a bad weekend. I didn’t coach Abby personally but the crews I coached raced her often– she was a tenacious and serious competitor and it looks like she’s carried that through into her post-collegiate career. She made the 2006 World Championships team in the Lightweight Quad and with results like these I suspect she’ll be on the line in 2009 as well.

Bravo Abby, well done!
