FANTASTIC results at the John Bennett Regatta this weekend! Our juniors traveled up to Buffalo, NY to race many competitive teams from the northern U.S. and Canada. Steel City was the only program to advance to Grand Finals in EVERY sculling event! We even had novices post very impressive times in varsity events.

The Men's Varsity 4x (Nate Kurzawa, Jacob Hopeman, Hunter Mahon, and Michael Degregorio) and the Men's Varsity 2x both got second in the time trial and won silver in the final.

The Women's Varsity 4x (Audrey Lyda, Julia Bulova, Leila Skinner, and Addison Greico) got third in the time trial and won bronze in the final. Finally, the Women's Varsity 2x (Abigail Hong and Audrey Lyda) WON their time trial! Due to technical difficulties, they were unable to compete in the final, but we are confident they would have brought home the gold.
