HOMESTAND: Members of Princeton National Rowing Association’s Mercer Rowing Club Men’s Youth 8 plus Coxswain are all smiles after taking second at the Mid-Atlantic Youth Championships at Mercer Lake to secure a spot in the upcoming 2016 USRowing Youth National Championships. Pictured, from left to right, are senior Kevin Borup (South Brunswick High), freshman Jack Gallagher (Council Rock High School North), junior Daniel Stoddard (WW/P-S), junior Grant Barthelmes (Ranney School), junior coxswain Sarah Brune (Lanoka Harbor), junior Carter Levine (Princeton High), senior John Tanguay (Hopewell Valley High), senior Jason Fleurial (Princeton High), and junior Andrew Hickey (Notre Dame High). PNRA/Mercer’s Women’s Youth 8 plus Coxswain, Women’s Youth Lightweight 8 plus Coxswain, and Women’s Lightweight 4 plus Coxswain also qualified for the national championship regatta, which will be held on Mercer Lake from June 10-12.
As the Princeton National Rowing Association (PNRA) hosts the USRowing Youth National Championships for the first time ever, it is hoping that some home cooking will help the four PNRA Mercer Rowing Club crews that qualified for the competition. more
