The Trident Crew entered 25 athletes in the Gasparilla 15k run, and several of those athletes not only finished, but placed in the top 10 of their age category! Typically, we use running as an added training tool to build our fitness for rowing. However, after seeing our teams performance last Saturday, I would encourage runners to use rowing as a training tool to become faster runners! Go Tridents!
The Trident Crew divided and conquered this past weekend, and earned several medals to show for it. The Novice Tridents traveled to Orlando to compete in the Novice Regatta. Each of the six boats that raced earned a medal, with the WN8 and MN8 highlighting the day in gold and silver hues, respectively. The Varsity Tridents took their battle to Sarasota for the first America Youth Cup Series. It was a battle with the wind for all crews, and the Tridents placed in multiple events. Finding sure victory over the wind and competitors was the W2x in first place. The W4x was edged out of first by only a few seconds. All results are posted below. Go Tridents!
Eleven Trident rowers from The Stewards Foundation competed at the 32nd Annual Southern Sprints indoor erg race this Saturday. Of those 11 rowers, 6 of them placed in the top 10, making a very strong showing for their team. Three of those 6 rowers earned medals. Brendan Philbin won 3rd in the HS Novice Ltwt Men category at 7:10, Hannah McCollough won 3rd in the HS Ltwt Women with 7:43, and Holly Drapp placed 2nd in the HS Novice Women at 7:45. Holly Earl and Reilly Goss earned 4th places, getting narrowly edged out of medal contention. Key to the Tridents' success was setting and keeping focus on specific goals. All results can be viewed at 2015 Southern Sprints.
