Coming Up: Youth National Championships UPDATED

UPDATE: USRowing will be live streaming racing starting on Saturday at 3:00 pm EDT at the following address:

On Tuesday, June 7, 23 members of the Mount Baker Junior Crew will travel to Oak Ridge, Tennessee to compete in the USRowing Youth National Championships.  Competing will be the Boys Varsity 8+, Girls Lightweight 8+, and Girls Varsity 4+.  All these crews qualified for the National Championships by finishing within the top three at the Northwest Junior Regional Championships.

Racing begins on Friday with the heats, repechages and semifinals are on Saturday, and finals are on Sunday.  If you want to get a rundown of how the progression structure works at the Youth National Championships, check out my previous post.

Schedules and results can be found on the USRowing site as soon as they are available.  Additionally, there has been talk of webcasting the finals on Sunday.  However, I have not heard for sure whether this is happening and given the popularity of this event, it may be spotty.

I will try to give a brief update during the weekend.  Stay tuned.
