AJRA showcased great depth in the program this past weekend, with impressive results from the Oak Ridge Dogwood Regatta. Teams from across the Southeast and Midwest come to Tennessee for a full day of racing, and AJRA rowers were able to race at a high level and perform well against tough competition. This was the last regular-season regatta for the team, and all squads are looking forward to building more speed in these last few weeks before SE Regionals.
Results from the AJRA racing squad were highlighted with a gold-medal performance by the Varsity Men’s Lightweight 8+, which puts the team into a good position heading into Regionals. The women’s varsity team was led by the Varsity 8+, losing a hard-fought battle to St. Louis Rowing Club, with the team also posting top-3 finishes in the 2nd Varsity and 3rd Varsity 8+’s. Both novice teams faced the stiffest competition yet of the spring season, bringing home 5 medals between them and gaining important race experience.
