OAK RIDGE, Tenn. -- A group of Wisconsin women's rowers capped off their five-week USRowing Badger Development Camp in style, taking home four medals at the recently completed 2014 USRowing Club National Championships. The event ran July 16-20.
Made up mostly of Wisconsin rowers, though open to all college-age athletes, the USRowing Badger Development Camp entered six pairs in the intermediate event, with five boats advancing to the 18-boat semifinals via time trail. The crew of Maria Schmid and Margo Grover reached the final and claimed the bronze medal.
In the intermediate eight, Badger Development Camp won its heat, then won the gold with a victory in the final. Coxswain Katherine Condon rode along with Gillian Cooper, Dani Steinberg, Andrea French, Sophie Carr, Anna Knutson, Claire Scott, Grover and Schmid to make up the winning crew.
Finally in the senior four, Badger Development Camp entered three crews, with its A and C boats reaching the finals. In the finals, Badger Development Camp A, with coxswain Condon, Cooper, Steinberg, Grover and Schmid in the boat, took home a second gold medal. The Badger Development Camp C boat finished in third for the bronze.
"The biggest takeaway from the weekend of racing and the 5 weeks of camp that preceded it is that we have a young group that is capable of working and racing really hard," Wisconsin women's openweight assistant coach Nancy LaRocque said. "They are committed to taking their team to the next level. It was really fun to see their hard work pay off and have them come home with some hardware around their necks."
