AJRA headed downtown to compete at the 2018 Atlanta Erg Sprints, and returned back to Roswell with the club’s 7th-consecutive Golden Hammer! This team title was earned with impressive results and medal placements across all junior categories throughout the day.


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.
