Bronze for the Pair

Bronze for the Pair at Youth Nationals 2016

Winding up another stellar year for the entire Berkeley High School crew team, the women’s pair of Lena Bertozzi and India Robinson earned a bronze medal at this year’s Youth Nationals Championships in West Windsor, New Jersey!

The Four Finishes Fourth in the Nation

BHS Crew at Youth Nationals 2016

After finishing fourth at the Regional Championships, the coxed four (Josie Byer, Elisa Forbes, Chloe Schalit, Lena Bertozzi, India Robinson) spent a few nail-biting days waiting to see if their petition to participate in the national championships would be accepted. However any doubt that our 4+ belonged on the national stage was quickly dispelled as the ladies produced impressive results in the heats and semifinals, and went on to wrap up the year as the fourth best team in the USA!
