Hooch brings optimism for crew team

The recent Head of the Hooch crew regatta  brought optimism for the the Space Coast Crew team as it prepares for the upcoming spring sprint season.

“I think that with the videos (from the regatta) and coaching, we’ll be rowing better technically,” women’s captain Katie Cronk said. “The weight and land workouts will improve our times come sprints. Together these things will allow us to be successful.”

The Hooch, located in Chattanooga, Tenn., drew more than 1,000 teams, making it  the second-largest regatta in America.

Sophomore Alannah Stewart reflected on the event.

“It brings back a lot of nostalgic memories of my novice year on crew and being there last year,” she said. “It’s also fun to celebrate with the novices about them crossing from novice to varsity.”
