SEATTLE – Two Bainbridge rowers claimed the first-place spots in their respective categories at the recent Northwest Ergomania Indoor Rowing Championships in Seattle.

Bainbridge varsity rower Rosie Brown took first place in the high school girls open weight category with a 6:58.5 time and Bainbridge varsity rower Samantha Dore also snagged first place in the high school girls lightweight category with a time of 7:48.4.

The competition, held at Magnuson Park and sponsored by the George Pocock Foundation, attracts hundreds of rowers from around the Northwest each year.

It is one of a series of international rowing “ergometer” machine competitions that culminate in the World Indoor Rowing Championships, the C.R.A.S.H.-B Sprints.

Bainbridge Varsity Boys Coach Bruce Beall was one of the founders of the event in the early 1980s, when the original Concept 2 machines made indoor rowing affordable and ubiquitous at health clubs and gyms.

“The rowers worked hard off-water during winter months to train and condition,” said Barb Trafton, head coach of the Bainbridge varsity girls. “Rosie and Sam are leading Bainbridge Island Rowing to a great start for our spring season.”
