Shen rower and high school senior, Joshua Freitas, participated in and won the B final at the Youth Regional Challenge at the 2017 World Rowing Championships in Sarasota, FL.  The Challenge featured 312 of the top Under-19 rowers from across the six USRowing regions. Each of the six regions – Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, and Southwest – will be represented by two all-star crews in each of the four boat classes – the men’s and women’s eights and men’s and women’s quads.

Joshua is coming off an exceptionally strong spring season having won the Stotesbury Cup and Scholastic National Championship in the Senior 2x. He is also no stranger to the course in Sarasota, having medaled there this spring at the USRowing Youth National Championships.
