Emily Oltrogge, Paige Boegeman, Alison Kent, and Sarah Ellis lead the Gopher Women’s team to a victory this weekend at the Northwestern Invitational regatta held at Northwestern University with a total of 32 points. Coming in second was Ryan Grosch, Emily Johnson, Wheeler Morris, and Allison Forbes with a total of 54 points. With the wind cooperating better than expected, the team sailed through the large swells, small chop, and frequent shifts of Lake Michigan to come out on top. Congratulations to both of our teams this weekend – a well sailed regatta all around!
With our first MCSA regatta under our belt for the spring season, we will be hitting the water this week to start practicing on Wayzata Bay – in the little open water that is available to us. This upcoming weekend we will be sending a team out to the U.S. Coast Guard academy to compete in Thompson Trophy- stay tuned Gopher Fans!
