WAY TO GO, ALEX!
Alex Edwards was one of 52 youth athletes selected from the Northwest region to take part in the new USRowing U19 Olympic Development Program (ODP) camp this summer. The Northwest team had 3 weeks of intensive training in Ashland, Oregon, where they focused on both sculling and sweep development and attended seminars on topics such as mental toughness, nutrition, race preparation, and rowing in college. The team then traveled to Sarasota, FL. for a week to compete against the other five regions in the inaugural "ODP Summer Cup.” Alex raced in three events, winning bronze in the U18 W4+ B. She also raced in the U18 W8+ and the U17 W4x.
