Sarasota, Florida, on June 10-13!
Bainbridge Island Rowing was proud to be represented by 8 junior rowers who traveled to Sarasota, Florida, for the pinnacle of competitive rowing.
BIR Director of Rowing and Varsity Boys’ Coach Bruce Beall is looking at the big picture in sending some of the team’s younger athletes to compete at the national level. “With only one of these rowers (Spencer Fleming) graduating, both of the girls and five of the six boys will be playing a critical role in the goal of continuing to make the junior team competitive at the highest level. They’re excited to work hard on improving their rowing performances and motivating their teammates to do the same”.
