ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

James Lynn Suggs won a bronze medal and placed third in the women’s lightweight single rowing race at the 2017 NW Regional Youth Rowing Championships held in Vancouver, WA, May 19-21.

Many medium and large rowing clubs had 30-44 entries, while the Duwamish Rowing Club (DRC) entered for the first time this year and had 3 entries.

DRC competed in the women’s novice double with Hazel Dahlquist and Laurel Glassley with a time of 9:11.8 and both Molly McDonald and Rhea Delora posted a 9:24.7 time in the varsity pairs. Each boat raced along side five or six other boats down the long 2000 meter course. These youth trained, under the guidance of their coach Mike Merta, through winter and spring both in the fitness center and on the water to be able to compete in these championships.

James Lynn said, “Today I raced against this amazing girl named Annie Kate. She got second place while I got third. After the race we ran to each other and hugged. Today I won 3rd place and made a great friend!”
