Grauer Kayak Competitor
Congratulations to Grauer sophomore Amanda C. '21 for her success in her recent kayak competitions! Amanda competed in one national and two international kayak competitions on 3 consecutive weekends March 23-April 6. Each of these races is a different discipline within kayaking, requiring different types of boats, paddles, and skills. The races were held where the Appalachian Trail crosses the swift Nantahala river in a rugged mountain gorge of spectacular beauty in North Carolina.
Amanda trained with wildwater racers from the USA, UK, and Australia. In the US Open Downriver, which had 2 components: an International Canoe Federation Sprint ranking race and a six-mile wildwater Classic race, Amanda placed 2nd in the Classic race, and 4th in the ICF Sprint ranking.
The following week, Amanda switched to a slalom boat and paddle for a week of training in whitewater slalom on the Nantahala with top coaches and paddlers from the USA, where she placed 2nd in the US Open Slalom March 30-31. Back home in San Diego, Amanda competed in the Silver Blade International Regatta on April 6, with paddlers from San Diego and Baja Mexico on Mission Bay. She placed 2nd in the Junior Women’s 200 Meter, and 3rd in the JW 500M.
