Novice Crew Champions!


Lizzy and Olivia have learned a new skill this Spring, and apparently, they are very quick learners!! They both have joined the novice crew team, as Julia did her freshmen year. It's a fun, and different sport, but the lower body/core training is excellent for volleyball as well.

The crew coaches have talked to me several times about how strong both of them are, and how good their "erg" times were--whatever that means. :) These two are naturals on the erg machine, and are part of the power center of the 8 person boat they're on.

Over spring break they went with the crew team to Georgia to train and compete and the Novice boat they were on took 1st place in the Clemson Race!!

Way to go, both of you. Keep up the great work, and stay warm in the wee hours of the morning out on that lake! :)

Here is a link to a recent race, shot from a head cam on the coxswain: http://youtu.be/Y3Xg2KPaTEY

And here is a clip of their boat way ahead in another recent race!!::
