We are incredibly proud of the hard work and dedication these athletes put in for their final weeks of training to get them race ready. Youth Nationals is the highest level of competition for high school athletes, the opportunity to race here continues Mile High's legacy of competition at the national level and provides great experience these athletes can build off of throughout their rowing careers.

The 2023 Championship marks Mile High's fifteenth consecutive appearance at this race.

Mile High athletes once again travelled down to Oklahoma City for the 2023 US Rowing Central Youth Championships. At this regatta, athletes had the opportunity to race in two different boats for the chance to qualify for US Rowing's Youth National Championships coming up in June. 
Almost all of our athletes competed at this event and, in spite of rapidly changing weather and racing circumstances, nine of our crews raced fast enough in time trials to advance to finals and two crews have qualified for Nationals. 
Saturday's races were all time trials to qualify for Sunday's final races. In the time trials, the top six crews from each event would advance to finals. However, due to high winds on Sunday, most finals races were cancelled and for the races that were cancelled the top three crews from time trials qualified for nationals.

On Saturday, February 11, 2023 our Mile High athletes competed virtually in the Shocker Sprints hosted by Wichita State University. This is a virtual erg race that puts all of our winter training to the test and gets us ready for spring competition. Athletes race 2000 meters in experience ranged events and since we are racing at altitude, our athlete's finishing times were adjusted to reflect the greater challenge we work against erging a mile higher than other teams. Four of our athletes placed high enough to earn medals in their events.

Mile High Rowing (MHR) athletes left their mark on national and international stages over the weekend of February 12-13, with rowers pounding out their 2,000 meter races at Wichita State’s Shocker Sprints and the CRASH-B’s National Indoor Rowing Championships. Both the Shocker Sprints and the CRASH-B’s took place virtually.
MHR’s winter season of indoor training resulted in many personal bests and medal finishes, showing the athletes that their grueling work on the rowing machines paid off. Max Xu took 2nd in the men’s lightweight 2k Shocker Sprints, with Louis Stempfer and Jake Mandes taking first and third, respectively in the Men’s Junior 2k. Alex Dawallu, headed to row at Syracuse in the fall, finished third at the CRASH-B’s, against international competition, beating out 14 other contestants.

​Results from indoor competition provide an objective measure of the rowers’ fitness and potential power output in the boat. College and national team coaches study the scores and reach out to junior head coaches with questions about a rower’s on the water performance and their leadership on the team.  Dawallu’s erg scores contributed to his recruitment to Syracuse. Kelly Roach and Violet Baker took the top 2 spots at the Shocker Sprints and attracted the notice of the University of Oklahoma City’s head coach.
