However, the afternoon crews proved to be stiffer competition for varsity eagles but the novices and JV continued to reel in golds in eights and fours alike, including a tight race to the finish in the novice men’s four. Skyline Crew is grateful to all four visiting teams for a great day of racing, and the team would like to thank Concordia and parent volunteers for making this regatta possible.
The novice women won their quad as well and the novice men took second in a competitive eight race. The Skyline varsity women also took first in the eight in a turn of events from their defeat by Pioneer on Skyline’s home water the previous weekend.
Overall, a great and challenging day of racing in preparation for Midwest Scholastic Championships, our qualifier for Nationals. Skyline Crew would like to thank parent volunteers assisting with regatta logistics, the five competing teams for the races, and St. Mary’s Preparatory High School for hosting this regatta.
