Total Team Meters 13,098,347

February 3, 2018: Ninety-six alumni, students & friends pitched in to row 13,098,347 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 566 teams -- right in line with previous years where we're in 19th or 20th place! Our meter total blew away our previous team record by nearly 5 million meters! Thank you to everyone that participated.

The Case/SARA team returned to stellar form by beating both the alumni and students team from the University of Chicago. Our alumni beat their alumni for the fourth year in a row, and our undergraduates beat their undergraduates for the first time in a couple years. The combined UC teams rowed a historically respectable 8,003,869 meters, but our combined total of over 13 million left little doubt this year.

A new competitor emerged this year from Colby College with the team name Snow Pond Training Center. The combined student/alumni team pulled over 9.8 million meters for 16th place. A new target for next year's challenge!

Leading the charge for SARA this year was alumnus Kevin Cronin who rowed 608,659 setting a new January challenge record! The top undergraduate finisher was Tim Nehila with 385,129m. Thirty-four people passed the 200km mark this year to earn a free hat -- another record. Congratulations to everyone and a special thank you to the 34 alumni and students earning their 2018 hat.
