Casitas Rowing attended the U.S. Rowing Southwest Junior Regional Championships in Sacramento May 4 through May 6 and medaled in three big events, securing an invite to the national championships for the men’s lightweight double. In the freshmen women’s and men’s boats, the Casitas rowers earned silver medals and the men’s varsity boat got bronze medals that brought them one step closer to a national title. Joe Wells (from left), Alex Legaspi and head coach Eric Gillett have been training all year with one goal in mind and their placement at the regional event earned them an invitation to Lake Natoma June 8 through June 10.
