As someone new to crew, the thought of waking up at 6 am to watch people row boats sounded miserable. I was right that waking up at 6 am on the weekend was miserable, that cannot be denied, however being introduced to the sport that is crew was surprisingly fun! My surprising discovery about the sport was not the only big moment, but also that Anna Alt (‘24) and Katelyn Douglas (‘24), both FHE rowers, won their race in the varsity pair.
Anna and Katelyn competed as a pair on September 25th, and in a show of skill scored a time of 11 minutes and 32 seconds.13 seconds ahead of any other competitors. Stamina, strength, and teamwork are all important during a race; those attributes were demonstrated during the duo’s performance, all culminating in a winning time.
