The Casitas Rowing team took on the 2000-meter race course at the Long Beach Spring Regatta March 10 and March 11 and liked the results at the end of the weekend. The winter training at Lake Casitas paid off as every junior athlete brought home a medal. Not only did every junior see success, but two varsity boys in particular have medaled in every race this year in their lightweight double and are charging forward to the year-end championships in Sacramento with hopes of advancing to nationals this summer. Joe Wells (left) of Ojai and Alex Legaspi of Ventura, both seniors, are working to make this summer one to remember as they finish off their high school rowing careers with several more first-place finishes.
