Newport, Kentucky, May 22, 2018
The Cincinnati Junior Rowing Club competed at the Midwest Junior Championships this past weekend, May 19 & 20th, at East Fork Lake. Over 40 teams competed from clubs across the Midwest including Pittsburgh, Chicago, Minneapolis and St. Louis. The competition consisted of Boy’s and Girl’s Varsity and Novice races. CJRC had an impressive showing by scoring the most points for both the Boys and Girls for the 18th consecutive year. In addition, the club qualified an impressive eight boats for the National Junior Championship taking place in Rancho Cordova, CA in June. (The top three places in the 1st Varsity events qualify for nationals.) In addition, CJRC medaled in 19 out of 22 races entered, highlighting the depth of this local team.
“We are proud of the Varsity and Novice crews’ spectacular performance over the weekend as well as the teamwork, camaraderie and sportsmanship displayed by our team. All the credit goes to the kids – they practice six days a week and make an incredible commitment to be able to compete at this level. We are excited to head to California in a few weeks and see how we compete against the top teams in the country,” stated Head Coach Greg Hull.
