2 Fox Chapel rowers selected for Olympic Development Program

Two Fox Chapel Area rowers have been selected to attend the USRowing Olympic Development Program.

Two Fox Chapel Area athletes will attend the invitation-only USRowing Olympic Development Program.

Ainsley Good, who rows for Fox Chapel Crew Club, and Lulu McCrady, who rows for Three Rivers Junior Rowing, were among 40 athletes selected from the Midwest and Central regions to attend the training camp in Pittsburgh and the subsequent racing camp in Sarasota, Fla.

The local camp, which runs for three weeks, is hosted by Three Rivers Rowing Association on the Allegheny River.

Good and McCrady were selected because of their strong indoor rowing ergometer times and on-the-water results, said Matt Grau, MidWest/Central Women’s head coach.

“Especially given their relative youth within the sport,” he said.

Athletes from across the region arrived in Pittsburgh on June 16 and trained for three weeks, rowing up to three times a day from the Millvale Boathouse.

Participants will travel to Florida on July 7 for a weeklong racing component on the world-class venue at Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota.

Grau said that USRowing this year instituted the training to prepare the top U17 and U18 talent in the region for national and international competitions.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
