October 7-8, 2017 OCU Head of the Oklahoma

Our Fall season began on the Oklahoma River in Oklahoma City with a 2.5 mile course filled with bridges.  Besides it’s many bridges this course offers the challenge of the wind that typically sweeps down the course.

We faced some very strong and seasoned crews with a very young and novice team.  However green they might have been in experience, our athletes performed well!

Our women’s novice quad rowed by Avery T, Jennifer T, Morgan M, and Grace K brought home gold.

Our men’s novice quad rowed by Alex L, Roan D, Juan V, and Eesa A would not be outdone by the ladies, and also brought home gold.

The women’s novice four rowed by Avery T, Morgan M, Celeste and Jennifer T, and coxed by Grace K brought home gold.  The team enthusiastically embraced a time honored tradition of throwing the winning coxwain in for a swim!

This is a unique regatta in that it has 500 meter night sprints under bright stadium lights!  We enjoyed cheering on one of our athletes, Avery T who rowed with her dad Ken in a Parent/Child double event.  Our ladies also  represented in two quad events.

In the C Final Spencer S, Peyton and Riley P, along with Alex L took first place in the men’s quad.

In the Petite Final Jack S, Andrew B, Roan D, and Chandler K finished 3rd in the men’s quad.
