|The News Page: Upper Merion Regatta 5/13/06|
Well, I missed it. The entire thing. And what a shame, for LM crew won 6 medals this day. Let's see if I have it right, that includes two for the Men's VL4 in the lightweight and middleweight events, the mixed 8 of varsity men and women, the Women's V8, the Women's V4 and the Women's Frosh 8. I think I got them all. The remainder of the boats made the finals, winning heats this day. How cool is that! Evidently, the lightning and thunder put the boats out of the water for a few hours interrupting the flow. Aaron tells me he was 'hot seated' all day, running from one boat to another as he, like many of the varsity, participated in multiple events. For instance, the lightweight 4 boys were in their 4 races as lightweight 4 and middle 4, but also in two races as a JV 8. 6 races, 9000 meters of high powered rowing. Now that is a workout.
The LM regatta is usually alot of fun. This year was no exception, but the overall performance of the program surely was.
GO LM CREW!
