Jack Schofield, Eric Hoster, Cooper Jones and Eddie Smith were also the fastest time from the Central region, beating out OKC Riversport, White Rock, and Texas Rowing Center handily. Eddie Smith and Drew Nichols placed 4th in the Men’s Youth 2-, a remarkable finish since they had only rowed together a few time in practice.
