Camp Randall will be traveling to the third annual Blake Haxton Fall Invitational in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday October 26th, 2013. The invitational is hosted by Upper Arlington (UA) and will feature some of the fastest crews in the rowing community to compete on the waters of the Scioto River at Griggs Reservoir. This regatta was created “in honor of a very special rower from UA Crew that, in the spring of 2009, lost his legs, and nearly his life, to rare flesh-eating bacteria”.
The Haxton Invitational honors the athletic tenure of UA Crew’s own Blake Haxton, “a true competitor, gifted athlete and a former Captain on the UA Boy’s team. Blake is now a part-time coach with Upper Arlington HS Crew and continues to inspire the team members and all those he meets. He is also a fulltime student in the Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University”.
Varsity and novice rowers will be traveling via bus to Columbus, OH for this regatta. Rowers will leave early Friday morning and return late Saturday night.
