Conference Eve

Just finished up in the office with all my travel preparations, getting ready to head off to Costco and taking a short moment to reflect. Conference always seems to come very quickly each year. It’s a great regatta that these seven schools have built up over the last six or seven years, and it has certainly become one of the best small-college races in the country. I love the fact that we’ve got a championship that rewards both depth of team and also requires excellent performances across many boats to win.

We’re looking at some probable good finishes tomorrow, some challenging races, and some races where our athletes may be in over their heads. Each scenario is part of the whole experience. As coaches our work is largely now done and it’s just up to us to make sure each boat gets to the starting line ready to go. The combination of pride in the work we’ve done and the sense of letting go as each crew leaves the dock is one of the things I love and loathe about coaching.

However it works out results wise tomorrow is going to be a good day.
