2015 RACE TEAM NOTES:  In September, 2015, this team did battle in 200 meter SPRINTS in the picturesque town of Cape May, NJ!  The first race resulted in a TIE FOR 2ND PLACE in a time of 1:08:10 -- a photo finish! The second race, a 4 boat race in the BCS Division, resulted in a FIRST PLACE win by fractions of a second! For this, the team was awarded their first TROPHY! The final race of the day, B Division Womens, resulted in a clear FIRST PLACE victory and a time that would have been a place medal in the A Division! Our coach prepared us well! Practice really paid off!

Racing in Philadelphia in June resulted in GREAT race times early in the season! The Baltimore Challenge was June 28 after a huge storm in difficult conditions and the team medaled with a bronze!
