Emily Brandt – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – Not all Mustangs athletes wear LRHS uniforms. A number of students compete on teams the school doesn’t offer. Seven such LRHS students competed on May 11-13 in the US Rowing Southeast Regionals.
The students who competed in this event were freshman Gaby Rosabal, sophomores Isabella Gomez, Owen Corr, and Walker Hutchinson, juniors Alexis Naguib and Ava Vandroff, and senior Isis Madden. These rowers are all part of Sarasota Crew.
Out of the seven from LRHS competed three qualified for Nationals in Sacramento, California. These students were Gomez, Vandroff, and Corr.
Gomez and Vandroff both qualified in the women’s lightweight eight, and Corr qualified in the men’s varsity eight.
“It was the best feeling knowing that all the hard work we put in at practice paid off. It still hasn’t sunk in yet that we qualified for Nationals and are going to California this summer,” said Gomez.
