Over the weekend the Boy's and Girl's Varsity programs traveled to Sacramento to participate in the 2010 Head of the American at Lake Natoma (also the site where our State Championships are held). The team had to rise early to make the 7 hour trip up the 5 freeway and from about 5:30am - 8:30am the rowers drifted back into a peaceful coma. A few bad jokes, millions of questions and a couple pit stops later we arrived in Sacramento and set up camp. The day finished with only a few minor problems and the athletes made their first day of travel relatively successful.
Saturday brought new challenges logistically as well as on the water with the competition. Most of the faster crew we will be racing in the Spring were in attendance and we were able to get an early season indicator as to how our training has been going. Below are the results followed by a short video. We are looking forward to next week when we are able to host NARF on our home turf! See you Sunday.
