February 4, 2013: Twenty-seven alumni & friends pitched in to row 2,852,398 meters in the annual C2 January Virtual Team Challenge (JVTC). For the challenge rowers had to row as many meters as possible between January 1 and January 31 then log their daily meters using the Concept 2 Logbook. The results were then ranked against other teams. The SARA team finished in 40th place out of 325 teams -- an improvement of 7 places over 2012! Thank you to everyone that participated.

After a three-year winning streak, the Case/SARA team was beaten by the alumni team from the University of Chicago. The UC alumni doubled their participant numbers this year and beat our team by 600,000 meters. The UC student team (a separate ranking group) beat our team again this year by 1.7 million meters.

Leading the charge for SARA again this year was CWRU Assistant Dean Ken Klika who took top honors with 303,000 meters! Two more people than last year broke the 200km mark and earned a free Case Crew hat. Congratulations to everyone and a special thank you to the 8 alumni earning their 2013 hat.
