Two State Championship Titles - 4+ and 8+
Dallas United Crew (DUC) high school rowing team raced in the Texas Rowing Championships last weekend in Austin, Texas. The 1000-meter event features a seven-lane, fully buoyed race course on Lady Bird Lake and takes place at Festival Beach Park. Great spring weather greeted the team as they competed in their races. DUC athletes have been preparing for the state championships all season and this weekend their hard work paid off. DUC brought home 70 medals from 10 DUC boats representing athletes from 10 high schools across the Metroplex – Highland Park, Bishop Lynch, Woodrow Wilson, Byran Adams, Science & Engineering Magnet, Shelton, Frisco High School, Hockaday, Ursuline, and Parish. Congratulations to all of the rowers and coxswains.
