Four McNicholas rowers compete in fall regattas

On Saturday, Oct. 29, four McNicholas students rowed in the first ever Head of the Hidden Dragon Regatta for the Clermont Crew at East Fork Lake. Senior rower Sarah Wampler was part of the women’s quad team (four people in one boat) that won a gold medal, and senior Christine Foster won gold in women’s doubles.

Every day after school, seniors Sarah Wampler and Christine Foster, and freshmen Molly Kidwell and Paige Jones go to East Fork Lake to practice their rowing skills. Foster also received a bronze medal in a single race at the Speakmon Regatta on Oct. 15 in Columbus.

Clermont Crew rowers will leave the morning of Nov. 4 for their last fall regatta, the Head of the Hooch, which takes place on Nov. 5 and 6 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It is the second largest regatta in the country, with thousands of rowers participating. “We have been practicing for this regatta all season, and we are all very excited,” Foster said.
