On September 17th and 18th the New Trier Varsity team competed in the annual Fall Scramble Regatta in Wisconsin at Pewaukee Lake against 20 other teams. The line ups were: Nathan Finklestein and Mallory Dieball, Izzy Rietz and Tara Hecht, and Preston Levy and Nora Donahue.
On Saturday, the winds were forecasted to be around 15 mph, but throughout the day they periodically died. The team got to have some great pizza out on the water, and A division completed 4 sets, while B completed 3. Post regatta, the team went out for a delicious dinner.
On Sunday, the winds slowly built, and by around one o’clock it was gusting over 15 mph. They started B division off first, and got 2 sets in for B and 2 for A division. NT pushed through the heavy winds and ended up 8th and 13th place overall. After a long day of racing the team went out to get some delicious ice cream. Thanks to Pewaukee Yacht Club for hosting and for Mr. Donahue for chaperoning, and Mrs. Hecht for driving!
