UCRC Brings Home Gold From Head of the Ohio

October 16, 2022

Earlier this month, the team traveled to Pittsburgh, PA for our first regatta of the Fall season — the Head of the Ohio. Our team spent a day in drizzle and downpour racing on the 2.6-mile course down the Allegheny River. Our team raced in 5 different events throughout the day and medaled in 3 of those races. Two of these boats took home gold. 

Juniors Connor Klein and Nathan Damas took first place in the Men’s Open 2- event. 

In the afternoon, our novice women took first place in the Women’s Novice 4+ event. The all-freshman boat held Laura Moser in stroke seat followed by Katrina Schneider, Claire Hulett, and Molly Moser in bow seat. Senior Kathryn “Kat” Alvarez coxed the boat to victory with a 1:26.1 lead over their closest competitors. 

Although wet and cold, it was a good day of racing to start off the season. We’re looking forward to our next regatta on Halloween weekend — the Speakmon Memorial Regatta in Columbus, OH.
