Local rowing club places in national competition



ROSWELL, Ga. — The St. Andrew Rowing Club Men’s Lightweight Four recently placed sixth at the U.S. Rowing Youth National Championship.

The championship was held June 9-11 in Sarasota, Fla. It is the premier junior rowing event in the United States, drawing nearly 1,500 athletes from over 150 teams from across the country.

The boat qualified for nationals with a second place finish at U.S. Rowing Southeast Regionals in May. To earn a spot in the Grand “A” Finals, the boat first successfully raced in time trials followed by a third place finish during semi-finals. The St. Andrew boat was the only boat in the Atlanta area to make it to Grand Finals this year.

St. Andrew’s Lightweight Four was comprised of Jerod Bayly of Sequoyah High School, Nick Patterson of Walton High School, Dylan Tanasijevich of Walton High School, Brice Hudson of Cambridge High School, coxswain Jordan Katz of Walton High School and alternate AJ Hall of Cambridge High School. The boat was coached by Jake Kazlow, the Varsity Men’s Coach.
