Director of Dallas United’s programs says “We had a great regatta with solid performances from all facets of our program. The men have a lot of depth and they showed it on Saturday night. The men's eight did a great job and I am proud of their results especially in the night sprints. The women were solid on Saturday, showing a brighter glimpse of their full strength on Sunday. The women look forward to getting back to work to continue to find more speed. The novice enjoyed their first regatta and got their first glimpse at what racing is like. I am happy to see our program continue to get better and knowing that there is even more growth and development to be had this year.  Great start to what will be an exciting year of leaving your legacy!"
