I am very happy to report that Kathryn Serra '23, is the USRowing Southeast Region Virtual Champion in the Girls' Under 17 Single event. She pulled a 2,000 meter ergometer piece at home in the outstanding time of 7:12.4. This superb performance earns Kathryn a bid to compete for a U.S.A. Rowing Virtual Youth National Championship in the under 17 single event against 21 other girls from across the nation.
The national phase of the event runs from May 25 to June 12, with Virtual National Champions announced on June 15th. In keeping with the "socially distant" nature of this unique competition format, each rower pulled a 2,000 meter piece on the rowing machine at home.
