2016 RACE TEAM NOTES:  At the DC Festival, on rainy May 21st, our dedicated BCS team came in 2nd in the Breast Cancer Survivor race against DC Pink and 4th in the all Women's final heat. GO TEAM!

2015 RACE TEAM NOTES:  In September, 2015, this team did battle in 200 meter SPRINTS in the picturesque town of Cape May, NJ!  The first race resulted in a TIE FOR 2ND PLACE in a time of 1:08:10 -- a photo finish! The second race, a 4 boat race in the BCS Division, resulted in a FIRST PLACE win by fractions of a second! For this, the team was awarded their first TROPHY! The final race of the day, B Division Womens, resulted in a clear FIRST PLACE victory and a time that would have been a place medal in the A Division! Our coach prepared us well! Practice really paid off!

Racing in Philadelphia in June resulted in GREAT race times early in the season! The Baltimore Challenge was June 28 after a huge storm in difficult conditions and the team medaled with a bronze!

OTHER:  Local artist, Nancy Hammond, has painted her rendition of "the paddles of the dragon" which is currently displayed in the breast center of Anne Arundel Medical Center.  That same painting is available for purchase on notecards and on a rolled print.  SEE MERCHANDISE PAGE FOR ONLINE PURCHASES.
