“Rowing is a sport that embodies a completely different dynamic than any other. I think joining the team is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made because it inevitably builds a tenacious, competitive attitude uniquely applicable to other parts of my life. The coaches are incredibly encouraging and motivating, fostering an optimistic and invigorating team demeanor. “

Chase Antonacci (member for one year so far)

The TRCJ team recently earned 5 gold, 6 silver and 4 bronze medals at the Wichita Frostbite Regatta.
