U23 ID Camp held at Duke University

This weekend we hosted an ID camp for the U23 National Team. We had 21 rowers from around the southeast and a few from Texas and Syracuse as well. We started the morning with a capped 30 minute erg test and a peak power test. Then the national team coaches selected 16 rowers to go to the water for practice. Our very own Alex Japhet and Emily Theys were selected to boat out. 2 of our freshman coxswain (Justine Hong and Sarah Baker) were at the helm for the 10k row. The rowers did some drills and then some power 20s side by side. We look forward to seeing how far Alex and Emily go this year with the national team, whether its at a development camp, freshman camp, or possibly earning a seat to Belarus for the 2010 U23 Championships. Good Luck!
