ORRA/Atomic Juniors Dominate the podium at TN Indoor Championship

Chattanooga, TN – Members of the ORRA/Atomic Juniors and Masters teams competed on Saturday at the Tennessee Indoors Rowing Championships in Chattanooga.  The competition included a 2000m ergometer race and optional relay event in which team members raced 500m each in a relay style race (ie. transitions from rower to rower were included in their final team time). 

With most rowers achieving personal best times, ORRA/Atomic’s 35 competitors had a very successful regatta.  The ORRA/Atomic Juniors led the way with 5 gold medals, 1 silver and 1 bronze.  The Junior women won 5 out of the 6 events entered!

“Winter training has been the key for our team’s success at the TN Indoors.  Its exciting to see our programs steady improving and meeting their goals.”, said Head Coach, Marc DeRose, about the junior and masters squads who raced.  “With continued training, I am confident that the results of the past weekend are only the beginning”
