Video Of The Week: Training with the Newport Aquatic Center Men's Rowing Team
This week's video comes to us from Newport Beach, California, where a very competitive NAC men's squad has been logging quality miles in search of that most coveted of hardware at the junior level—a medal at the USRowing Youth National Championships, set for this weekend on Lake Natoma. At Southwest Junior Regionals in the first week of May, NAC showed that they've had an excellent recruiting year, winning the men's novice eight and second novice eight, the novice four, and the frosh eight, while at the varsity level, the NAC men took silver in the lightweight eight, bronze in the varsity four, and gold in the men's single. NAC, along with West Coast powerhouse programs Marin, Oakland Strokes, Los Gatos, and Long Beach Junior Crew will all be in action in Sacramento, and likely in contention for a number of podium appearances.
More to come on junior nationals later this week here on RR—in the meantime, please follow the link for schedules and event information via the official website of USRowing.
