Rose Carr named to junior national rowing team

Jul 14, 2015 04:06PM, Published by Steven Hoffman, Categories: Recreation, News




Rose Carr, representing the Newport Rowing Club, has been named a member of the USRowing Junior National team, which will compete in the World Junior Championships in Rio de Janiero, Brazil, from Aug. 5 to Aug. 9.


Carr, 16, a Newark resident who will be entering her junior year at the Conrad Schools of Science, is the first female from the Newport Rowing Club to be chosen for the Junior National team. Nathan Smith, in 2012, was the first NRC athlete selected for the Junior National team.


For most of the 2014-15 rowing season, she teamed with her sister, Tara, a senior at Conrad, in double sculls competition, taking first place in all but one of their races. They concluded the season with their second consecutive first place in the Mid-Atlantic Junior District Championship Regatta, and a fifth-place finish at the National Championship Regatta, in Sarasota-Bradenton, Fla.


Last summer, Rose Carr helped the U.S. team win two races in the international CanAmMex Regatta on Lochaber Lake in Nova Scotia. She qualified for the national team after training at the 2014 Junior National Development Camp and earning a promotion to the High Performance Junior National Team.


“Competing at the World Championship has been one of Rose’s goals for as long as I can remember and she has worked tirelessly towards it. Her work ethic is second to none. I am extremely excited for Rose. The thought of watching her represent our country is thrilling,” said NRC head coach John Cohn.
