Cedar Cunningham - Senior

The race expectations were high, however we did not preform as well as we hoped to. We are excited to get better this next week and head up to Spokane for another shot at beating the bulldogs.

Kyle Hole - Freshman

As we progressed through the races we all found our rhythm and got quicker. It was very exciting to be out in the water racing and we all brought the energy. We worked well together quickly adjusting and getting better.

Cooper Page - Freshman

The first race of the season felt really good. Our boat found great success in the transitions even in the rough water today. Our boat did a great job motivating each other through the whole race. 

Xavier Fortier - Freshman

First race, winds were blowing hard, the waves were crashing, but we held it together and preserved through. With good transitions and determination we pulled through. Second race was just as hype and felt more smooth overall, stayed at a good pace and gave it everything we got at the end. Overall a good first race day!
