On October 8, approximately 30 Awty secondary students made their way to Brooks Lake in Sugar Land to participate in the 2017 Gulf Coast International Dragon Boat Regatta, where the Awty Rowing Rams won first place in the U18 age category. Jeremy Jason, the team’s captain and drummer, led the team for the sixth time.
The Awty team was sponsored by the APPA, the Awty Rams Booster Club, and a group of Chinese parents. Parent Coordinator Ms. Lisa Li did a great job organizing the event. Members from the China Club and the Chinese Honor Society also volunteered to promote the event.
This is the second time an Awty team has won first place in the Dragon Boat competition. Great job, Rowing Rams! Paddles up!
