Last Sunday afternoon, June 14, the Lyme-Old Lyme High School boy’s varsity four boat came from behind to snatch the silver medal in an intense race in the US Rowing Junior Nationals held in Sarasota, Fla.
Initially, the crew comprising stroke Liam Corrigan, Josh Swanski, Jeremy “Remy” Newton and Harry Godfrey-Fogg with Thomas Crisp (cox) led the field, but then were overtaken by Bromfield Acton Boxborough and Deerfield Schools. Thanks to a last minute spurt, the Lyme-Old Lyme boat regained second place to take the silver medal. This was an incredible achievement for a tiny public school in southeast Connecticut.
CONGRATULATIONS, LYME-OLD LYME!
