U.S. Rowing teens are dominant duo on world stage

REDINGTON BEACH, Fla. — For Berkeley Prep sophomore Britt Wotovich, rowing begins in the weight room, and it’s all about preparing the body for the challenges of the ocean.

“It’s definitely a warm-up — get everything loose and kind of get ready for the row,” said Wotovich as she worked out on a rowing machine.

Wotovich is one of the best young rowers in the nation, so it only made sense to pair up with another top rower for mixed competition.

She didn’t have to look far to find Jesuit junior Brian O’Leary, who takes a lot of pride in representing his country.
