CONGRATULATIONS TO COXSWAIN TARA FAGAN - Tara spent 15 days training with the Junior National Team in Connecticut this past June. Tara has continued the long tradition of superb AJR coxn's and represented herself and AJR admirably during a highly competitive Junior National Team High Performance Selection Camp. She was one of 5 coxswains selected from the entire nation; these selections truly represented the 'best of the best' in high school coxswains. She received glowing reviews from both her rowers and the coaching staff. This experience will undoubtedly further our programs competitiveness during our 15'/16' season! Go AJR.
