Please help support ARION (Advanced Rowing Initiative of the Northeast) race at Royal Henley Regatta in England from July 3-7, 2019! ARION is the elite team out of Saratoga Rowing Association and is located in Saratoga Springs, NY.  

All members of ARION are training with goals of racing at the World Championships and Olympics, and this international race experience will be integral to achieve those goals.  

This year ARION is sending a women's quad (4x) to race in England.  The quad will be made up of Lily Keane (Barnard 2013), Mo McAuliffe (George Mason 2011), Kristi Wagner (Yale 2015) and Kara Soucek (Gonzaga 2016).  The boat is coached by SRA executive director, Eric Catalano. Some previous highlights of their rowing careers include Kara and Mo raced in the USA quad at the 2018 World Championships, Mo and Lily won the women's double at the Head of the Charles in 2018 and 2017.  Kristi won the women's double at Canadian Henley in 2018.  Racing so far this year, all four women finished in the top 8 in singles at the US Trials 1, and Lily and Kristi finished third in the double at US Trials 2.  

We have been working hard together all year and are excited to continue our hard work in a race environment.  Any donation will help make a difference as our trip is entirely self funded.  Thanks in advance for your contribution, we appreciate it enormously!

Hello from Henley!

We have been in England for four days and raced in our qualifier yesterday afternoon! We had a good race and secured our spot in the official regatta! The draw will take place later today to sort out who we will race in the first round, but we do know our first race will be on Thursday!

While we are very excited to be in England, we did have a hiccup in our plan when one of our boat members, Kara, was injured shortly before leaving New York. Kara is going to be okay but could not make the trip overseas so we instead have a new boat member, Heidi Robbins!

Heidi just finished up her second year of medical school at Dartmouth but she has competed in a few races with ARION and we are having a great time adjusting to the new lineup and figuring out how to turn lemons into lemonade!

We are back to work this morning to pick up some more speed before racing resumes next week, but with Lily and Heidi's birthdays coming up we will be sure to squeeze in some fun!

We could not be more grateful and appreciative for all of the support and donations! We also really appreciate all of the texts, emails and messages!
