Twenty-two Riverfront rowers and coxswains competed in the 2013 USRowing Masters National Championship Regatta in Sarasota, FL from August 15-18, 2013, racing against 107 rowing clubs from the United States and Canada.
Riverfront medaled in 70% of the events they entered, earning 7 gold, 6 silver, and 6 bronze medals. Medals were earned in the AA4 (21-27 years old), C8+ (43-49 years old), D4+ (50-54 years old), and G4+ (65-69 years old) categories. Racing in his single scull, Scott Pape also took home 2 medals for Riverfront.
In the men's team point standings, Riverfront finished 2nd only to the Potomac Boat Club, a Washington, DC rowing club established in 1869.
Congratulations and thanks go out to the Riverfront men's team coach, Jonathan Near, Riverfront men's team captain Mike Puckly, and to all the rowers and coxswains for their hard work and dedication.
