Thirty rowers from Parati competed against 100 other clubs from around the country at Lake Harsha in Bethel, Ohio from July 13 – 17. Parati rowers raced against All Star teams, World teams, college crews, and in one instance a member of the Indian Olympic team! Parati qualified 22 boats for semi finals, 6 boats to the finals, and won bronze in the U17 Women’s 2x with Lindsey Brown and Grace Butero. Parati place 15th overall in team points with a small contingency – a great showing for such a small team. The race experienced gained by Parati rowers at Clubs will serve them well in the season to come.
Youth Nationals in Princeton, NJ was a bit frustrating – weather canceled much of our racing – but our kids are amazing. In spite of disappointments and frustration they had a great attitude and all came away learning some very important lessons, both about rowing and life in general. You should be proud of how ALL our rowers represented Parati. We congratulate the Men’s lightweight 4+ who placed 9th in the nation- Nate, Drew, Reid, Cam & Ally. Well done!
Parati had a great showing at the Central Youth Championships in Oklahoma City to qualify 6 crews to US Rowing Youth Nationals at Mercer Lake in New Jersey June 10 – 12. In spite of sweeping for only 2 short months, Parati captured gold in the Men’s Youth lightweight 8+ and in the Men’s Youth lightweight 4+, upsetting Jesuit, OKC and Dallas United as a 4th seed. Winning silver, and securing a bid to Nationals, was the Women’s Youth 4+. Parati’s Women’s Youth 2x, the Men’s Youth lightweight 2x, and the Men’s Youth 4x also received bids. Parati will take 19 athletes to race at Nationals, a remarkable feat for a team of 47 kids in only its 4th season. With only one graduating senior amongst the Nationals qualifiers, Parati’s future looks very bright.
