Novice Women have had an awesome fall so far! Very proud of finishing the fall season with 5 events with a silver medal and 1 gold! This fall has been full of team building and hard work. Ask the athletes about the team bonding yarn activity and their 3x3k erg! I am excited to keep the momentum going as we start transitioning into spring racing season. Happy Holidays!!
