Row for Autism Race Results

Row for Autism Race Results

By Kassandra Nevarez, Marketing and Communications intern

One more for the books! Last weekend, our high school teams had a strong performance at Row for Autism in Port Washington, NY. It was a little chilly and a little windy, but it was dry (thankfully!).

The venue was beautiful. There was a beach launch, lots of warm up space and six racing lanes. Most importantly, our athletes gained one more racing experience. This will help them train for the for Long Island Junior Rowing Championships Regatta this coming Saturday, and New York State Championships, which is only three weeks away!
