Every winter for the past 12 years, Langley crew has competed against West Springfield in a rowing competition. The rules are simple, each team has 20 minutes to row as many meters as they can on the indoor rowing machines (aka ergs), and whichever team averages more meters wins.
For the first six years of this competition West Springfield won, but since then Langley has won each event. And this year Langley defended its title again, finally tying the total score between the two teams. Senior rower Thora Toloczoko said, “I think West Springfield was harder competition than we had expected this year, but the end result was amazing.”
However the competition was quite close, with West Springfield winning the Novice (first year rowers) men and women’s category, as well as the Varsity women’s category. Langley won the JV men’s and women’s categories, as well as the Varsity men’s.
Langley rower and winner of the Weight to Power award for the Varsity, Mason Liddell said “I think it went really well. We got a lot of the medals they gave out.” In fact Mason won the award for the best ratio of weight to power for all the Varsity men.
