More Results

Some results I missed:

At last weekend's FIRA Fall Classic UCF's lightweights won the heavyweight B race with a time that was third fastest overall (out of 10 boats).

At the Head of the South last week NC State won the lightweight 4+ over Atlanta and Jacksonville. NC State won by just one tenth of a second over what I assume was the same Atlanta boat that won the Hooch. A tenth of a second out of twenty minutes? That's as close to a tie as you'll see.

Actually, the Atlanta boat had a different rower in 2 seat. (Me.) I was originally seated there at the beginning of the season, but unfortunately broke 2 ribs by coughing (long story) before the Charles and had to find a sub. The rest of the boat welcomed me back for the last race of the season so I could at least race once when my ribs healed! So... no, it wasn't the same line-up! (In Atlanta's defense!!)

Admirable to 'fess up like that, although I'm sure your teammates wouldn't suggest that they would have been a tenth of a second faster with you switched out! Anyway, there's nothing like laying on your back with broken ribs, is there? Makes you wish for an erg piece.

yeah, not really a "fess up" - more of just a clarification of a different line up. oh, and i never wish for an erg piece! NEVER!
