Sunday hopeful Head of the Fish schedule

Here’s to hoping that Mother Nature doesn’t rear her ugly head again Sunday as the Head of the Fish heads into it’s second day and that it is a full day of racing.

The adults and colleges were blown off for Saturday’s afternoon racing, but Sunday looks to be much more wind-friendly than Saturday was.

Here is the race schedule with bow numbers courtesy of Saratoga Rowing Association and the ‘Timing Princess’ Susan Pruiksma.

Results will be posted to @NYSRowing on Twitter as you expect. Reda will be off-site posting and staying warm. Saturday’s weather also pushed me out to Gloversville for the Section 2 field hockey championships, times three, so good luck to all teams.

Stay warm, row fast!

Abbreviated Saturday Head of the Fish Results

Well, Mother Nature took umbrage to the annual last weekend of October regatta in Saratoga Springs. When grizzly, seasoned regatta director Chris Chase called the weather Saturday morning ‘miserable’ you knew it was bad.
With the wind gusts increasing heading into the afternoon, the second slate of racing was cancelled as it was chock full of small boat events.

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Fall rowing can be one of the cruelest seasons for an athlete.

Many of the Saratoga Rowing Association competitors started their season in mid- to late August and Saturday was the first time they were able to wear their SRA uniforms and pull an oar against someone not in their boathouse at the annual Tail of the Fish Regatta on Fish Creek.

Four more years – From Fish Creek to BU

STAN HUDY – SHUDY@DIGITALFIRSTMEDIA.COM
Saratoga Rowing Association senior rowers Kathryn Grabowski (left) and Catharine Griskowitz (right) have rowed together for the past nine years and will both attend Boston University this fall as part of the women’s lightweight program.

They have been best friends since grade school, they learned to row together on Fish Creek and the success will continue for Saratoga Rowing Association seniors Kathryn Grabowski and Catharine Griskowitz who are both joining the Boston University lightweight program in the fall.

SRA’s Kathryn Grabowki and Catharine Griskowitz to attend BU

The duo have competed in almost every configuration of boats for SRA through the years and wanted to end their careers together in the double, winning a state title last weekend.

The two rowers, not college roommates (too much of a good thing), will look to continue their winning ways at nationals.
