Hats off to the women of Sweet Briar College!
From Laura, director of the outdoor program (SWEBOP) at Sweet Briar:
Yes We did it!!!!! We have lots of good stories and tales to tell about the American Canoe Association Collegiate Canoe and Kayak championships for Virgina Schools! We are on to Nationals in October.
Lauren Morgan took 3rd place in open boat single paddler division
Keri Falk took 3rd in the exhibition race through the class 2 + rapids
Then the exciting race of today was the relay race and we took 2nd place beating the very impressive Hollins who took 3rd place…it was quite the upset..(but we still had dinner together and Krispy Cream hot donuts the night before for a little sister school camaraderie in our competition.)
SO drum roll please, out of 5 VA schools Sweet Briar won 3rd place overall and they have a trophy to prove it!
