Flags are posted at each team tent and trailer to help rowers and coaches identify their own in the labyrinth of oars, boats, slings, and trucks.

Before the sun began to peak over the horizon, rowers shuffled slowly up to the boat trailer to begin a long weekend of intense competition. At 6:30 am, the work began.

Over the next two days, the HHS crew team would compete against schools who fought to take titles and national qualifying spots away from them, but in the end they would prevail.

The women’s lightweight 4x went on to grand finals and qualified for the national competition that takes place in May at Rutgers University in New Jersey. The men’s junior 4x placed first in their petite finals and are in the running to be petitioned into nationals by head coach Jesse Tate. Overall, for as small as the team is, they compete well against some of the bigger and most intense teams on the water.

At the end of the day, the HHS crew headed back home and began their preparation to do it all again in two weeks at the FSRA Sweep Championships.
