Waterford Crew, so close to Saratoga, yet so far

There are 19 towns in the U.S. that carry the name Waterford and at this year’s Saratoga Invitational it was Waterford Crew from Utah that traveled cross country to row on Fish Creek at Saratoga Lake, just 30 mninutes north of Waterford, New York.
It got even more interesting when the Waterford Coach, Andrew Henrickson, graduated from Skidmore College (the S-turn for the Head of the Fish) and coached one summer with SRA.
Here is the story from The Saratogian.
