What will we do with that $132,000? Find speed. Find efficiency. Find our performance edge that will benefit every athlete at the Pocock Rowing Center. Specifically, we will be purchasing THREE eights, 3 sets of sweep oars, AND refurbishing nearly all of our current fleet of 8s, 4s, 4xs, 2xs/2-s, and 1xs (new sandals, wheels, tracks and oarlocks). Check out the auction video here!
Thank you to our amazing guest speaker, Ellen Heile. Here are some of her inspiring words shared with us on Saturday night:
“Looking back, I couldn’t have done it without the support of the community and my teammates at Pocock. My dedication and character was supported and shaped by every athlete that had sat in the seat before me, every athlete who would sit in it after me, and by the legacy of the women named on the bow decks – Sarah Hirst Smith and Lia Pernell — who constantly reminded each and every one of us to work harder, be better, and go faster.” -Ellen Heile, PRC Class of 2015
