The following was submitted by the Mystic Valley Regional Charter School:
Racing against 14 other teams at the Massachusetts State Championships on Sunday, Mystic Valley rowers had a very impressive day medaling in four events, and posting the fastest times, per boat, of the season.
The stars of the meet were the Boys Varsity 2x made up of Mario Hanna and Ben Horton and the Boys Novice 4+ Cox Ashley Inman, Kyle Manley, Wolfgang Wentzell, Jimmy Sickler III, and Daniel Cunningham as they came home as State Champions in their events. The two man boat finished the two mile course in 12:40.11 and the four man boat finished in 13:42.12.
The Boys & Girls Varsity 4+s both placed 3rd in State to round out an extraordinary day for the team.
After the race an ebullient head coach Ian Faley proudly gushed: “A brilliant end of the season. The team demonstrated the skill and determination that has defined great rowing. This has been Mystic Valley's best season, yet!”
