Norwalk River Rowing Medals in 10 Events at Saratoga Invitational

NRRA’s novice and varsity teams raced at the Saratoga Invitational last weekend, with 14 crews bringing home medals in 10 events, including one Gold medal finish, four Silver medal finishes and nine Bronze medal finishes.

The Novice Women’s Quad celebrates their bronze medal finish with Coach Allgood’s regatta dog, Barley. From left to right: Kayla Heber (Wilton), Isabella DeSantis (Ridgefield), Josie Constantine (Stamford), and Lia Schlegel (Norwalk).

The 20th annual Saratoga Invitational regatta, held at Fish Creek in Saratoga Springs, NY, is America’s largest sprint race, featuring 10 lanes of 1,500 meter racing among top crews from the Northeast. More than 40 NRRA rowers from Wilton, Ridgefield, Norwalk, Fairfield, Darien, Stamford and Pound Ridge competed in 29 events during this prestigious two-day race. The team started off strong and, despite high winds and rain on the first day, the girls and boys teams kept the momentum going.
