Team Delta Tops Two Million Meters in the WEC
DSC’s Team Delta logged 2,172,989 during the one-month World Erg Challenge, travelling the equivalent of 46,000 meters beyond Amarillo (or within only 5.5 kms. of Prince George, British Columbia)! Almost half of those meters were rowed by our top four participants, Kurt Johnson (301!), John Silverton (270), James Marquez (220) and Beverly Klunk (200). Beverly simultaneously did the April Fool’s Challenge, finishing both challenges with amazing results! Also above the 100 km. mark were newcomer Jean Hendrix and experienced rowers Susan Ollis, Rebecca and Renaldo Abreu, and Pat T. and Bob O. (both wives beating out both husbands!).
Several DSCers topped 40 kms., led by newcomer Jody Nance (90) and including Kim Sparrowk, Bob Lee, Rachel Tappero (who logged over 58 kms. as a PR 2 rower!), Lesley Galloway, Dee Shunk and Amy McDaniel. Masters scullers May Mardini and Dale Casale also contributed several thousand meters. In between school work assignments, several members of DSC’s Girls Row Stockton team also contributed many meters to Team Delta’s total. Besides Amy McDaniel (with 41 kms.), Tania Tufui-Niu (29), Skylar Flowers (22), Sydney Jones (18), and Hannah Noe (9) also contributed to DSC’s more than 2 million meters.
Very exciting was the incredible push within the last four days of the challenge, when Team Delta’s average per participant went from 77 kms. to 94+ kms.! That enabled our team to extend our average per participant over three teams, all with more rowers than Team Delta’s 23.
WELL DONE TEAM DELTA!! MORE CHALLENGES TO COME.
