Hampered by injuries in their first sculling regatta of the sprint season, Delta Sculling Center’s high school competitors came roaring back at the 510 Sprints, April 1st on the Oakland Estuary. And we’re not fooling!
Nathan McDaniel and Sebastian Muñoz finished 2nd while challenging River City Rowing Club’s A crew in the final 500 meters of their 2 km. race. Posting a time of 8:58.5, Nathan and Sebastian easily beat two other doubles in the young men’s Under 16 event.
Delta Sculling Center’s young women’s double of Josie Deuel and Abigail Muñoz finished a strong 4th out of 8 in their Under 17 race. Clocking a time of 9:23, the sculling double beat out the A and B crews from River City and two other clubs’ A crews.
Committed to Coach Bob Maclean’s training regimen, both sculling doubles now look forward to participating in the USRowing Southwest Youth Championships, May 4-6 at Lake Natoma in Gold River.
