Stotesbury Cup

May19, 2012

Congratulations to everyone for our best showing ever for Blair Crew! Here are the “unofficial” results:
An excellent showing by the Women’s Junior Four+ (Keianna, Jeanne, Annie O, Alex F, Sadie), who came in 31st out of 61 boats in their time trial! The most competitive event of all! Their finish time of 5:37.89 beat out local WMIRA teams Holton Arms, O’Connell, and St. John’s College. They did not make Top 18, but were a very respectable middle-of-the-pack. Not bad for an almost-novice boat racing as juniors!
The Boys Senior Four+ (Grant, Henry L, Eli F, Henry S, James A) had their personal best finish time of 5:11.87 and beat out 9 other teams (including Bishop Ireton) in a competitive event with 47 entries. Only one senior in the boat and Eli F switching to starboard to race.
The Girls Senior Eight+ had an excellent race, overtaking another boat in the chute at the start. They finished 21st out of 36 boats in their event, with a finish time of 5:08.81. They were just 6 seconds off from the top 18 who went on to Semi-Finals.
A big thank you to Alternates, Molly B, Chloe A, Emily O, Romel L, Alex R.
