Total Team Meters 8,616,149

February 15, 2021: Seventy alumni, students & friends pitched in to row 8,616,149 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 37th place out of 886 teams! Thank you to everyone that participated.

The combined Case/SARA team crushed the combined UC student and alumni team from University of Chicago by over 3 million meters. We also took top honors for the "education" category amongst all teams. Our alumni beat their alumni for the seventh year in a row. Due to COVID-19 many students didn't have access to ergs so they did not race against UC this year -- a later spring competition is planned. The upshot is that everyone on the team - students and alumni - that completed the 200km got hats this year!

Leading the charge for SARA this year were alumni Dan Bachmann and Doug Rathburn with Dan pulling 457km and Doug clearing 336km! The top undergraduate finisher was Finn Hittson with 535,275m. Twenty-two people passed the 200km mark this year to earn a free hat. Congratulations to everyone and a special thank you to the 14 alumni earning their 2021 hat.
