On Saturday, March 4th, a group of Westdalians invaded Ridley College for the Ontario Indoor Rowing Champs. Some nagging injuries and illness forced a few withdrawals at the last minute, but the coaches thought it better to scratch than cause further injury or aggravation. Some valuable lessons were learned as we gained some experience in how to deal with race day pressures! I’ve listed those who finished in the top half of their field below, as well as those who set PBs (Personal Bests). Well done to all who competed. Not easy to put your feet on the line and be counted!!!!

Ethan: 16th out of 68 in the Jr. HS Men 135 category.
Alex: 17th out of 34 in the Jr HS Men 165 category.
