Trident Girls V4x Wins First State Gold for The Stewards Foundation

It was a hot, windy, but successful weekend at the FSRA State Sculling Championships.  Several Trident boats made Grand finals, and one of those boats pulled ahead of the rest.  The Girls Varsity 4x: Ashley Ball, Kaley "Wojo", Holly Drapp, and Lexi Klein-- all juniors and 1 sophomore, put their blades to the water faster than the other V4x's on the course to cruise to a first place.  Next on the bucket list?  FSRA Sweep State Championships of course....

Go Tridents!

Volunteers

Much like the act of moving a boat, hosting a regatta involves a LOT of moving parts that need to be highly coordinated in order to be successful. Volunteers are crucial to making all of these parts move in the right way.  From parking direction, to registration, launch-driving, starting-line, finish-line there are roles in which YOU can help!  Please use the Sign Up Genius button to find a complete list and select something that will help all of the student athletes have a successful racing day:

Fall Season Success

This Fall The Stewards Foundation Tridents reaped the benefits of a productive summer sowing season and harvested the most successful fall head race results to date.  It started off with a change of plans.  Initially we were set to host the Head of the Hillsborough, but due to construction on our riverfront we chose instead to visit the Gator Head Regatta in Gainesville for the first time ever.  Amid a beautiful setting of oaks, hanging moss, and a light chop on the water, the girls eight set the tone for the day by winning their event.  While the rest of the day was full of challenges, from borrowed boats to protests, a series of medal-worthy finishes helped us to wrestle our competitors into submission and bring home the head of the gator team points trophy.  Finishing first in their events were the GV8, BN8, GV4x, BN4, G2x.  Second place finishes included WV4xB, B4x.  Third place, and adding to our points tally, included BV4, B2x.  

Facing a slightly more frightening event, The Halloween Regatta, the Tridents courageously matched blades with a few of the biggest and fastest in the State.  The girls 8 and boys novice 8 finished just out of medal contention in 4th, a boys jv 4 finished 5th, girls 4x medalled in first, girls v4 in third, girl.s jv 4 in third and fourth, boys 4x in third, and boys novice 4 in third.  A very solid performance considering the competition.

Then, to cap the season, we travelled to Tennessee to visit the 2nd largest head race in the country, the Head of the Hooch.  Here we faced events that were filled with anywhere between 40-70 boats from some of the fastest crews in the Central and Eastern United States.  The boys had a solid showing, finishing 15th in the 4x, Brendan Philbin finished 9th in the Novice 1x (his first 1x race ever), and the girls rowed strong to a 16th in the eight, and a third in the 4x.

The Trident rowers are now busy working hard in their winter training to build on the fall for a powerful spring season.
