Three State Champion Bulldog Women Return for 2014-15 Season
Emma, Hayden, Zoe, Alex and Bri Racing at Brevard Champs in March 2014
We are fortunate to have three Florida State Scholastic Rowing Champions returning for the Mel-Hi Crew 2014-15 Season. Emma Daninger, Hayden Hamaker and Zoe McNeely rowed in the Women's Varsity 4 boat with Alex Heirston and coxswain Brianna Wright to win the State Scholastic Championship Trophy. After winning the Florida State Championship in April, our women's team rowed at the Scholastic Nationals in New Jersey and finished with their best time of the season.

MEL-HI CREW Competes At Nationals
Zoe, Alex, Bri, Hayden, Emma, Michael, Santi, Megan, AJ, Orny at State Sweeps on April 27, 2014
In order to qualify for Scholastic Rowing Association of America (SRAA) Nationals, our Bulldog rowers had to finish in the top 3 at the Florida State Rowing Association (FSRA) Sweeps Championships in Sarasota on April 26-27, 2014. Two Mel-Hi Crew boats qualified for nationals. Our Boys Lightweight 4+ finished THIRD in the Florida Grand Final and our Girls Varsity 4+ finished FIRST in the Florida Scholastic State Final. After raising enough money to pay for all expenses, the two teams were off to New Jersey for the SSRA National Championship on May 23-24, 2014.
At Nationals in New Jersey, our Boys Varsity Lightweight 4+ finished 7th in the Nation and our Girls Varsity 4+ finished 5th in their first heat. The Boys boat included Santi Peralta-Ramos, Michael Orndorf, AJ Powshok, Michael Ryan and Megan Bellstedt. The Girls boat included Emma Daninger, Hayden Hamaker, Zoe McNeely, Alex Heirston and Brianna Wright. Also, rower Alex Heirston established a new record for Mel-Hi Crew with her 4th Scholastic Championship win.
Scullers Win Silver Medal at State Championships
Michael Orndorf and AJ Powshok Sculling at Brevard Champs Regatta in March 2014
Mel-Hi Crew competed at the FSRA SCULLING Championships in Sarasota on April 13-14, 2014. Our Boys Lightweight 2x with rowers Michael Orndorf (Orny) and AJ Powshok finished SECOND in the state earning the Silver Medal and qualifying for a trip to Nationals. Unfortunately, a rower can only compete in one event at Nationals. So Orny and AJ chose to row with Santi and Michael in the Boys Lightweight 4x at Nationals. In addition to that impressive performance, Santi Peralta-Ramos finished in 6th place in the State of Florida, rowing in the Boys Varsity 1x.
