Runner up at USA Olympic Trials
We have just finished up the final part of our winner takes all US trials and we finished second. We a very disappointed with how this event turned out, but want to say congratulations and good luck to Anna, Molly, and Debbie for winning the event and getting the opportunity to represent the USA at the Olympic Games this summer.
The event started with a semi final round where we raced Genny Tulloch and team. We knew going into this series that it was going to be a battle, and it was exactly what we expected. The first day ended with us narrowly beating her in the last race of the day, to bring the series to 3-2, her lead. The first race the next day was a doozie. She had a penalty and held us past the committee boat and got a penalty. We had a horrible take down and even though the umpires gave her multiple penalties we were unable to beat her, making the series 4-2, team Tulloch. After regrouping, we went out and won the next four races to win the series. It was a great confidence boost to know what no matter how far we were down we were going to fight for it.
