The girls rowed in FL, PA, NY, CT, NH and MA
During this spring, they took gold in the 4 largest regattas on the East Coast
Nationals, Stotesbury Cup, Saratoga Invitational and NEIRA's
These accomplishments were rewarded with scholarship offers exceeding $680,000
The girls are off to NSU, Phillips Exeter and Kent
Abbie and Eliza gained Jr. National Team invitations to sweep selection camp
and will likely spend the summer in either Germany or the Czech Republic
To truly understand their accomplishments its worth considering the following;
These 4 make the most unlikely foursome, 3 rowers and a coxswain
2 freshman, one sophomore and a lightweight senior
height range from 5'2" to 6'3", weight range from 105 lbs to 142 lbs
As such, in nearly every race they were either the youngest, lightest or both!
No boathouse, no training facilities, no infrastructure, no outside support of any kind
just 4 remarkable young women in the constant pursuit of perfection.
