San Anselmo and Greenbrae Girls Lead US National Rowing Team

Chelsea Lucas of Greenbrae and Kristy Wentzel of San Anselmo helped lead the Marin Rowing Association girls junior eight-plus crew to the United States Junior National Rowing Title, bringing a triumphant close to the 17 year olds’ careers with the Marin Rowing Association.

Now the girls are competing for their country at the World Rowing Junior Championships in Brive-la-Gaillarde, France. The competition will be held from Wednesday through Sunday. The girls were selected for the team after an invitation only camp held in Connecticut.

For Lucas, this will be the 2nd year in a row as coxswain for the junior national team, and, she hopes her 2nd consecutive gold medal. She describes the feeling of winning a gold medal as unforgettable.
