First Race of the Season

Last Saturday, January 30th, the womens team went down to Lake Lanier for their first competition of the season, Lanier Heartburn Sprints. In the open weight category, Samantha Smelly and Meg Schroeder came in first and third . Caitlin Chapin and Carlee Schmidt came in first and third, respectively, in the light weight race, and to finish the day off Kris Batol came in third in the mens coxswain event. Caitlin Teague and Cassie Merrigan both competed in their first 2k race ever in the novice event. Both girls broke 8:10 and made a statement, “they are to be feared.” While Lanier is only a small event, it has pumped up the team for the rest of the season; we now have our sights set on Atlanta Indoor Sprints and even Dad Vails.
