Northwood Crew Competes at Tail of the Fish

On Saturday, September 27, three Northwood Crew athletes competed at the Tail of the Fish Regatta, in Saratoga Springs. At the start of the day’s racing on the 2-mile Fish Creek course, Caroline Harrison ’23, rowing her first “head race” (a time trial over a longer-than-springtime distance, typically on a winding river course)—and her second formal race ever—placed 6th in a field of 8 U17 junior women single scullers. Two of the girls who beat her were from an elite junior program; the other three were from the Saratoga Rowing Association and train daily on the regatta’s course. Caroline brought home a medal for taking third place among “A,” or first-boat, entries. At the other end of the day, Imani Hawman ‘20 and Su Hae (Jessica) Jang ’20—two lightweights (and scholastic runners-up at May’s New York State  Championships) with no lightweight event on offer—went up against the open-weight junior women’s doubles and placed 17th among 25 crews.
