The Orlando Area Rowing Society crew travelled to Sarasota to compete at the Sculling States Championship meet Saturday, April 15, and Sunday, April 16.
OARS rowers saw a high level of competition as they went down the race course at the Nathan Benderson Park, rowing against some of the best teams in the state of Florida such as Belen Jesuit, Sarasota, Treasure Coast Rowing Club and Vero Beach.
With 21 entries, OARS had eight boats qualifying for the petite finals — to claim their state placement between No. 8 and 16 — and 11 boats qualifying for the grand finals — where they competed for a state placement between No. 1 and 8.
OARS already is back on the water preparing for the upcoming Sweep States that will take place April 29 and 30 at Nathan Benderson Park.
