Belted Galloway Recap

Game Date
Apr 20, 2024

  • We began the day strong with our Women’s Varsity 8+. We finished second behind the defending state championship Forest Hills Northern boat by only half a length. This is significant because of how young our V8+ was. 1 Freshman, 4 Sophomores and 4 Seniors. Over half the boat are underclassmen racing against an almost entirely senior crew.The women’s Varsity 4x finished 2nd overall. 

    • The women’s Varsity 2x is a crew that I think has some potential. Both Annie and Ruth rowed a clean race, but with no practice it was clear they might have been a bit uncomfortable. As the race continued, you could see them both get a bit more comfortable, and they started to push the rate up and they began walking back up on the Lowell crew who finished second. 

    • Our lightweight 2x of Natalie and Paige had a great race from start to finish. They rowed clean and were fighting with the crew next to them to the finish. 

    • The women’s varsity single of Ruth Gleason got her first race in the single out of the way taking gold! With this race, it was important for Ruth to get the feel of the boat in a racing format, and I think we accomplished that. We are excited to see her keep getting more comfortable and faster in the boat.

    • The women’s pair was quick right off the start. They opened up a big lead and kept pulling away from their opponents, eventually winning by 20 seconds. With a few small tweaks to help aid with steering, this boat could have a great season.
