ROWTAMPA Summer Camps Log Another Summer of Success

The young Tridents of RowTampa have had a hot and busy summer, logging miles on the water and ergs, and success on the race course.  First, the FLJR Race Camp traveled to Cincinnati Ohio for the USRowing Club Nationals.  The 8 girls and 1 guy had to fight through time trials, semifinals, and some hard fought finals.  Highlights include the girls U174+ finishing 6th, and the girls U172x finishing 3rd to take home a bronze medal. Then, combining forces with the HP2 camp to go to Halifax, and through a series of golds, silvers and bronzes across multiple events for the guys and girls, take home the points trophy with 280 points!  Not only have the Tridents made all of the Stewards Foundation proud, but they had fun doing it.  Go Tridents!

3 Stewards Foundation Tridents Compete at Youth National Championships

Please join me in congratulating three of your fellow teammates on their participation this past weekend in the USRowing Youth National Championships.  Hannah McCollough, Kaley Wojchiechowski, and Holly Drapp all competed on a stage with the best rowers from the best teams in the country, and The Stewards Foundation family is all proud of their efforts.
Olympic Gold Medalist Susan Francia, from the US Women's 8+, spoke Thursday night at the ceremony honoring the senior rowers.  Her words are resonating with me today, and will continue to resonate as we move forward.  She said that her single most memorable race ever was the 2005 World Championships when they were leading the race by open water at the half, and ended up barely finishing 4th.  That loss became the fuel that motivated them to work harder and to eventually win Olympic Gold.  She left us with the reminder that our ability to succeed will depend on how we handle our failures, and our ability to persevere.  So, while we didn't yet win at Youth Nationals, we've finally broken through to that stage for the first time in Stewards history.  I think I speak for the whole Stewards Family in saying that from here, we will only increase our level of performance on that stage, because each of you all have shown the ability to persevere.  

Let me give one last big CONGRATULATIONS to Hannah, Kaley, and Holly for their efforts and their perseverance.
