A pair of rowers from the St. Louis Rowing Club did well at the recent Head of the Hooch at Ross’s Landing Park in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
The race was held on the Tennessee River and was hosted by Atlanta Rowing Club & Lookout Rowing Club.
The team of John Jaeger, a senior at Ladue, and Hunter Wallace, a junior at Ladue, finished in second place with a time of 20 minutes, 24 seconds for the 5,000 meter race.
Coach Andrew Black said he was pleased with their performance.
“John and Hunter are among the best junior rowers in the country,” Black said. “They work very well together and stay consistent.”
Both will be rowing after high school.
“John has committed to row at Brown University, where he will be studying engineering,” Black said.
“Hunter is just starting the recruitment process and is already garnering interest from coaches at top programs.”
