Crew competes at home

The Space Coast Crew raced against Pine Crest High School at the Oars and Paddles Park in Banana River Indian Harbour Beach on Saturday. The Space Coast Crew’s men’s varsity 8, junior varsity 8, 3rd 8 got first place, all of the men’s varsity 8 won first place and the women’s varsity 8 won second place.

“We did a good job and won the majority of the races, which is good since it was against one of the tougher teams in the state,” senior Jack Baney said.

“For the top two boats, to be honest it wasn’t much of a race, but for the younger guys, (the freshman) I think it made them realize they still have a lot of work to do in order to become successful,” junior Sean Markham said.

The Space Coast Crew’s next regatta will be the District Championships in Titusville on April 1. This will be against teams from Daytona to Miami and along the east coast.
