The South Burlington High School Rowing Team participated in The Icebreaker on Nov. 17 in Boston Harbor. The event marks the Northeast Regional Youth Open-Water Rowing Championships and is sponsored by the Boston Rowing Center and the Hull Lifesaving Museum. The best youth open-water rowers in New England competed for the coveted “Key to the Harbor,” and raced in both sprint and distance events, culminating in the Nautical Mile Challenge. The SBHS team is coached by Emily Gilmore and Michelle Goldsmith. “Each of our novice boats earned first place in one of their race categories, and our intermediate boats were strong contenders,” Goldsmith said. “Overall, it was a rewarding and successful day, with Boston being a fun culmination to months of hard work.” “We saw wonderful support from the rowing community as Michelle and I began our first year coaching,” Gilmore added. “The team was incredibly supportive of one another and their success stems from the hard work and dedication they put into the rowing season. I’m excited to see what the spring season has in store for us!”
