OPRA team members compete at ‘Ergomania’

Seventeen adult and junior athletes from the Olympic Peninsula Rowing Association (OPRA) competed at The Northwest Indoor Rowing Championships (Ergomania) held in Seattle in late January, racing in seven different 500-meter and 2,000-kilometer events and taking home a total of eight medals.

Local rowers started the day off well, with master rowers Suzy Narbutovskih winning her age event and first-time racer Tim Saskowski placing fourth out of eight competitors.

OPRA junior rowers dominated the youth 500 event, with Zach Gavin taking first and Harrison Fulton coming in a close second. Jack Feingold and Vince (“Skittles”) Pavlak attained personal best times in the event.

The OPRA junior girls swept the event, with Lisa Martin, Ella Ventura and Sophia Groves placing 1-3, respectively. Shannon Callahan did well as a first-time competitor in this event.

Kristinna Kennedy won the women’s open 500 race. Calum Swinford placed third in the men’s 500, with Scott Kennedy and Aiden Feingold besting their previous times in that event.

OPRA varsity rowers also proved to be very strong contenders. Both Maria England and Tyler Turner posted competitive times in their races.

Nathan Mishler finished with a solid mark in the varsity boys event with a 2,000-meter time 6:31, placing him fourth in a formidable field of 62 entries.
