GFS rower James Wright '18 was successful in making it through the USRowing selection camp and has become a member of the 2017 Junior National Team! James will represent the United States at the 2017 Junior World Championships held in Trakai, Lithuania, August 2-6, 2017. He will be competing in the 4x.
Coach Aaron Preetam says, "James went well above and beyond in his training the last two years. Training through the summer, additional work on the TR (lifting) and two a days during winter break. While he has the ideal frame for a rower, it was his drive and determination that led to his first place finish at Scholastic Nationals and garnered him a spot on the Junior National Team. I am proud of what he has accomplished. He has raised the bar of excellence for his teammates."
