The Chestnut Hill Local reports on James Wright's experience competing in the World Rowing Junior Championships in Trakai, Lithuania."For most high school rowers, the season ended near the end of May or, at the latest, in early June at the U.S. Rowing Youth National Championships. For James Wright, a rising senior at Germantown Friends School, the crew campaign continued right through into August.
After competing at the Youth Nationals in Florida Wright travelled to California, where he would take part in the trials that would determine the makeup of the U.S. team that would race at the 2017 World Rowing Junior Championships in Trakai, Lithuania on August 2-6. He had raced on his own in a "single" throughout the scholastic season, but at the national selection camp he was picked to join three other elite scullers and represent the U.S. in a four-man quad."
