HEAD OF THE HOOCH 2017
Texas Crew came home with gold in both the Mens College & Club Light 8+ and 4+! With their successes last year many of the open weight boats had to compete in the Championship categories and although those did not result in medals this year we are excited to see how they can cut into that category next year! For full results you can use the link below.
Texas retained the HOCR bid for the Men's Club 4+ (21st out of 52 entries, 17:48.374). Unfortunately the Men's Collegiate 8+ and Women's Club 4+ were not able to retain the bid but got in some solid racing. We're excited to see what's in store for HOCR54!
Texas Crew raced in Austin at the Pumpkinhead regatta last weekend. They were entered in many races and came home with 5 silvers, 3 bronze, and the gold medals in the following events:

HEART OF TEXAS 2017
Another successful Heart of Texas came to a close with a number of medals for Texas Crew. The team earned gold in the Mens Open 4+, Men’s Novice 8+ and Men’s Novice 4+. In each of those events they also received silver and in the Mens Novice 4+ they took bronze as well for a clean sweep. They were also awarded silver and bronze in the Mens Open 8+ and silver in the Womens Novice 4+. All in all with the rain on Saturday pretty solid results. We cannot wait to see what these athletes put down at SIRA! Hook 'em!!
