The morning in Little Rock ran smoothly. The race was small but buzzing with excitement. The course was a straight shot with the city skyline in the background. With Samford Crew alumni there to cheer us on, the Samford tent on the riverbank was particularly chatty.
We raced three boats—2 varsity women’s fours and 1 novice women’s four. All three boats medaled in the race, and as we packed up to head back to Birmingham, the team was all smiles. Samford Crew’s first trip to Arkansas was certainly a success.
