From Coach Emily: Head of the Christina
With a smaller group than we’re used to, we kicked off the fall racing season this past Sunday on our home course for Head of the Christina. Our only boat for the day, the boy’s varsity 4, came in right around the middle of the pack at 6th out of 13.
HOC is always a nice way to begin the season, having the comfort of the home course and sizing up some familiar competition. Across the board with the team we have room for improvement with aerobic preparedness, which isn’t terribly surprising- it’s not the fun training! From summers off, the main area of focus as we move forward will be finding the cohesive swing across boats and firming up the aerobic base that will help on these long fall races.
As we move forward through the season, we’re hopeful to get more team members races by getting access to smaller boats. Please be patient with us in this process and trust that we are moving as swiftly as possible to make this happen. Thank you all again for the support you provide to our athletes and our efforts as a team!
