Weekend Racing!

So our season may be done, but college and national team racing around the country is looking fast and furious and it’s fun to watch.

Abby did it again— partnered with Michelle Trannel she easily won the NSR #2 regatta by 9+ seconds and is looking like a solid favorite for a spot in the lightweight women’s double going into the summer. Very awesome for a former Lewis & Clark novice, heck, very awesome for anyone!

I spent part of my sunday afternoon watching the action from PAC-10’s; aside from the heater of a race for first in the men’s varsity one of the best stories to me was the very impressive performance by Oregon State to pip Washington at the line for bronze in the women’s 1v. Kate Maxim, a Lewis & Clark Law grad and former assistant coach here, is working with the OSU women and coached their novice boat to a bronze at the regatta as well. It’s been fun staying in touch with Kate and watching the development of that program; well done and kudos to them for a great weekend of racing!
