The Saugatuck Rowing Club continues to pump out national caliber athletes.
And a good number of them live right here in Westport.
Eddie Kiev was a coxswain on the US Under-17 junior national team. He helped his boat to a silver medal on Friday, at the US Rowing Club National Championships in Camden, New Jersey.
Parker Cuthbertson was a member of the CanAmMex junior national team that won a gold medal last week in Mexico City.
Sven Herrman and Sam Kleiner were part of the men’s high-performance team, which also competed in Camden. Sam won a bronze in the U-19 4+ event.
And keep your eyes on these guys (and gals): Harry Burke will row for the men’s U-19 worlds team, and Kelsey McGinley, Alin Pasa and Noelle Amlicke are on the women’s U-19 worlds team. Both boats compete in the Czech Republic on August 8.
All are Staples High School students. And all of “06880” congratulates them for their great work!
