Saturday September 19th saw the start to another great Music City Scrimmage. This year we had a full morning of racing with teams from Saint Cecilia, Brentwood High School, Harpeth Hall, Nashville Masters and Juniors, Row Huntsville, and Rocket City! The morning went off without a hitch, other than the occasional customary water skiing wake. The scrimmage has always been a great way to get an early snapshot of lots of different lineups and to see athletes in multiple boat classes before the start of October, and some of the larger regattas throughout the fall. We were happy to see the Nashville Rowing family continue to grow with the Harpeth Hall ladies in their first races with our Juniors, and are equally as excited to see new clubs like Row Huntsville jumping in the mix!
Early morning races were able to utilize the full 5k course, despite a head wind. As the morning went on and wind picked up along with boat traffic some of the later flights were shortened to 2.5k, but still just as competitive. For some athletes, this was their first competition ever, while others were lining up with and against old friends.A big thank you to the teams that traveled to the lake to race, and especially to all the parent and rower volunteers who really help to make things run so smoothly.
Results are available HERE, and there will be more pictures to come on the Nashville Rowing Flickr page as we continue to collect them from parents and spectators! (Thanks to HH Nuss and Katherine Frensley for the pictures here!)
