NBC Scullers Advance to National Youth Championship Grand Final June 12, 2010

A Special Report from Steve Clark

Harsha Lake , Cincinnati , OH: It is raining with thunder storms in Cincinnati today. It looks like the Youth Committee did the right thing by going to the C Progression. There has been no racing after 8:40 this morning and they hope to get the balance of today's schedule in after 1330.

Yesterday afternoon was hot (87 degrees) and very humid. There was a cross tail wind that swirled around to become a spot head wind but the course was pretty fast and times reflected the conditions. They also reflect the quality of youth rowing at the national championship level.

In the Men's Single, Anders Weiss, who will be a senior at Barrington High School , did not have the row he was hoping for and finished well off the pace. His time of 7:50.579 would be good under many circumstances, but when Andrew Campbell of New Canaan , CT puts down a 7:17.329 in the same race it looks very ordinary. The other heat was equally impressive with Matt Maddamma posting a 7:08.765. There are some very good scullers here, and Anders, who has less than a full year of sculling behind him, should be proud of what he has achieved. He will compete in the B (Petite) final on Sunday.
