Riverview graduate Hunter Leeming is headed to the 2011 Junior World Rowing Championships beginning Aug. 3, in Eton, England.
Leeming, a captain for Sarasota Crew during the 2010-2011 season, will be competing in the Men’s 8+ along with athletes from California, Connecticut, Oklahoma, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Maryland. He helped Riverview win the state championship, with gold medals in both the Single and Boys Varsity 8.
This is the fourth consecutive year that Sarasota has sent a rower to the national team. Approximately 600 rowers from 50 nations are expected to compete.
