Varsity Men Race at Nationals in Florida

Nationals 15

AJRA sent a Varsity Men’s 8+ to the USRowing Youth National Championship, held June 12 – 14 in Sarasota, Florida. This was the second year in a row the Men’s V8+ has qualified for the event, bringing 9 rowers down to Sarasota for the national competition. Over 1500 rowers were in attendance at the regatta, setting a record high for the level of participation and bringing the event to new levels of competition.

The Men’s 8+ raced well in heats and reps on Saturday, but failed to advance to Sunday’s finals, and placed 21st overall with their time.

Of the 9 AJRA athletes racing at Nationals, 8 were seniors, and had two great races to cap off their junior career. Several of them will continue rowing next fall for their collegiate teams, and we look forward to cheering them on!

USRowing also hosted a graduation reception for all participating senior student-athletes, and you can view a recording of the ceremony here.
