The Norwalk River Rowing youth teams had a strong opening to their fall head season at the Tail of the Fish last Saturday, returning home with 12 medals: three golds, two silvers and six bronzes. This was the youth team’s first visit to a Saratoga Springs race in several years. The day was very warm and, after a delayed start due to fog, quite sunny. Twenty-six clubs entered 310 boats in the regatta, with 27 of those entries coming from Norwalk River Rowing.
The gold medals were earned by the Boys Varsity 4+, Boys Varsity 2-, and Girls Varsity B 2x. The Boys Varsity 4+ beat the second place boat by 21 seconds in a race that lasted just a bit more than 11 minutes.
Silvers were garnered by the Boys Varsity 8+, Girls Varsity 4+ and Boys Varsity B 8+.
Bronze medals were earned by the Girls Varsity 2x, Boys Varsity 1x, Boys Varsity B 2x, Boys Varsity B 1x, Girls Novice 8+, and Boys Novice 4+. The Boys Varsity 4x finished only one-one hundredth of a second out of medal contention.
