This was the first spring competition for the Atlanta Juniors, and is the only indoor competition for the varsity and novice squads. Erg Sprints is a rare opportunity for rowers to compete and race individually, representing their team.

For 2018, AJRA brought home the team title with 14 medals, including 3 individual efforts that placed them in the top-20 all time record books for the club.
