Katie Toothman ’12 to Represent U.S.A. at World Rowing Junior Championships August 3-7
Posted August 1, 2011
Katie Toothman ’12 is on her way to Eton Dorney, Great Britain this week to compete in the World Rowing Junior Championships August 3-7. Katie earned her trip after being selected for the U.S. Women’s Eight (W8+) during USRowing’s two-week selection camp earlier this summer. She has spent the last month training with her teammates at the USRowing training center in Princeton, NJ.
As a junior, Katie could be seen on an erg outside the Old Gym at the first sight of spring and helped pull St. Andrew’s into the Stotesbury Regatta Final this season.
Girls Varsity Crew Coach Cal Hurtt couldn’t be prouder. “Katie is a great teammate who happens to be blessed with very rare ability. With all her physical gifts she trains harder than just about any rower we've seen at St. Andrew's and I'm so excited to see it all paying off with a spot in the Junior Team eight this summer. She's worked very hard to earn her spot.”
Go, Katie, Go!
