“The focus, drive, determination, and competiveness this crew has demonstrated all season went on full display the entire weekend here in Vancouver,” said girls head coach Libby Weick. “I know each of our athletes is excited and honored to represent Lakeside at the USRA Youth National Championships in Tennessee.

The Lakeside boys lightweight 4+ boat paced by senior Geoffrey M-N. fell short of qualifying after turning in a fourth place performance with a 6:58.46 result.
