Rowing: Two Vashon boats finish in country’s top ten

  • Jun 15, 2016 at 1:30AM

One might be tempted to assume that the 2016 USRowing Junior National Championships were plagued by leprechauns.

Then, the cancellation of all racing on Thursday's practice day eliminated the chance to fine-tune the rigging of the boats that the club borrowed for this distant regatta. Finally, in a very unusual circumstance late on Friday after a day of heat races, officials decided to cancel Sunday's finals in anticipation of high winds.

The giant banner at Eastern Washington University's Roos Field read, "You're in the inferno." The atmosphere at the WIAA Track & Field Championships in Cheney last weekend, however, was more a demonstration of heavenly athleticism and angelic sportsmanship than something hellish.
