MRRA Men's pair at Pan AM Trials Print E-mail

pornell_panamMRRA men’s pair, Mike Poreba and Rich Connell, did an outstanding job at the Pan Am Trials.

They had an extremely good showing at the Trials, starting off a bit slow in the heats and gathering tremendous momentum as the Trials progressed.  They posted the fastest time in the reps while also posting their best time yet of 6: 49.

In the finals race, which was streamed live, Oklahoma City Training Center boat shot out in the lead and the guys fought it out with the OKCTC B for second place.  While OKCTC A stayed in the lead, our guys fought bravely as it turned into a 3 boat brawl for second place.  In the end, our guys finished fourth, having posted yet another personal best time of 6:47!

These guys truly represented MRRA well and deserve recognition for their outstanding job.  And as Vee said, "I couldn’t be more proud to be called their coach!"
