Total Team Meters 8,383,625

February 2, 2016: Sixty alumni, students & friends pitched in to row 8,383,625 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 19th place out of 461 teams -- an improvement of 11 places over 2015 and another meter record! Thank you to everyone that participated.

The Case/SARA team continued on form by beating the alumni team from the University of Chicago for the second year in a row. We beat both the individual teams from UC - the students and alumni but their combined total of 9,790,958 still beat our combined student and alumni total. Last year our combined group was beaten by the UC students, but finished ahead of their alumni. We had a stronger undergraduate participation rate this year, which helped push us closer to the combined UC total.

Leading the charge for SARA this year was Case grad student James Wehn who rowed 422,723 meters, which is our second highest ever total! The top undergraduate finisher was Chris Ryu with 308,854m and the top alumni finisher was last year's overall winner Thomas Schwertner from Germany with 304,216. More people every year pass the 200km mark with 19 people reaching the mark this year for a free hat -- 9 more than last year. Congratulations to everyone and a special thank you to the 19 alumni earning their 2016 hat.
