Laker Navy Represented at Canadian Henley!


A few of the Laker Navy’s own showed up to the Canadian Henley Regatta last week, each representing their various clubs. Ben Norrix raced for Washtenaw Rowing Association (Ann Arbor, MI), Donnie Jensen and Ben Williams raced for Riverside Boat Club (Boston, MA), and Costas Ciungan coached the Detroit Women’s Rowing Association (Detroit, MI).

  • Ben Norrix set a personal best in the single, putting on display all of the work he did this summer.
  • Donnie and Ben got knocked out in the semi in their 2x, missed qualifying in the U23 8+ by .7 seconds, and took second in the Lightweight, missing gold by 2.6 seconds.
  • Coach Costas coached his team all the way to the semi-finals, bu ultimately got edged out by some other crews.

Regardless of the outcome, the Laker Navy applauds its’ athletes for continuing to strive towards greatness even after our regular season is over!
