The ESD crew team returned home with three medals from Head of the Oklahoma Regatta last weekend.
In the women's races, Katelin Gildersleeve '19 picked up first place for Women's Youth 1x while Katelin and Katie Smythe '18 won first for the Women's Youth 2x. The Men's Youth Novice 4x, consisting of team members Ford Bannister '21, Preston Moderi '21, Sam Lindsey '21, and Christopher Hess '21, took second place in their race.
The ESD crew team participated in an impressive 21 races, after weeks of practice and training under the watchful eyes of their five coaches. Three of the crew coaches are ESD alums themselves, Cait Pennington Dunn '07, John Pennington '10, and Floy Gaidarski '09, and were able to cheer on their alma mater to victory at the regatta.
Izzy Harrington '18 also won two bronze medals in an eight-person boat with students from a variety of Dallas schools: the Women's Youth 8+ and the Women's Youth 8+ Night Sprints.
Congratulations to our student-athletes on their wins!
