    It’s a bummer this is scheduled immediately before the Junior 2k.

  • admin says:

    While there are juniors events that begin at 10:40am, our goal is to reach student athletes who are within a year or two of graduating. We assume these rowers will be participating in the 2k events between noon and 2:00pm, which should allow time to attend the Q&A and warm-up for their events. If you have specific questions for the panel, please feel free to ask in the comment section and we’ll try to get it answered for you.
