Cascadilla had a very successful couple of days at the Head of the Fish Regatta in Saratoga Springs. Thankfully the weather was about 20F warmer than last year, with markedly less precipitation. The masters competed Saturday, and the scholastic athletes competed on Sunday. Both groups brought back some fish heads - the notorious and much-coveted ugliest trophy in rowing (Rockett's newest fish head, "Caroline," pictured below for reference..nb they don't all come with names, Caroline is special).

Full results should be on Streamline Rowing, but I can't get them to show up. Your best bet is twitter: https://twitter.com/nysrowing?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor.
Many thanks to all the parent volunteers who helped with our most logistically challenging regatta. The juniors' season wraps up next weekend with Pull the Plug in Pittsford!
