“It was a great way to start our spring season,” said Head Coach Nicole Stimpson. “Almost all of our boats were able to get in solid racing experience today with two races each. Having a time trial and a final allowed them to review any issues they may have had in the morning and come back out fresh and focused for their final.”
Gunston Crew continues their season this Saturday, April 1 at home with a duel with St. Paul’s Boys and Episcopal’s Girls.
