Spring forward on the water

Nick Hickey, Reporter   The Wyandotte Rowing team is going on their annual spring break trip to Oakridge, Tennessee, leaving at 3:00 am on Monday morning, the team plans to hit the water and get stronger.   “We leave on Monday morning and have a nine hour drive ahead of us to get to Oakridge to hit the water,” junior Emiliano Mendiola   With two practices a day, one in the morning and one in the evening, rowers get exhausted during the week.   “After the first couple days you do get tired and rest becomes really important,” senior Max Bearden said.   For the first timers the trip brings hope but some nerves.   “I’m really excited and I hope I can improve my technique… I am nervous because I don’t know what exactly to expect,” sophomore novice Jerald Harrington said.   Expectations are high for some rowers to come back better and hopefully win some big regattas.   “I hope that we are able to row everyday there and when we get back, have some good runs in the regattas,” Mendiola said.
