Another chance to experience first-hand the sport we pride ourselves in.

Sunday, April 27, 2014
When the UC San Diego Dragon Boat Team left Arizona, a thirst for redemption fueled the team to work harder to redeem themselves in Long Beach. Despite a new wave of board members that took charge this quarter and despite the especially grueling practices on both land and water, the focus of this team never wavered. Within a short span of four weeks, this team has grown stronger each and every day.
Going into the first race of the day was intimidating and nerve-wracking because it immediately determined which division the boats would race in. But, mother nature was not going to make it easy because an unrelenting 12 mile per hour head wind pushed us to our limits. In addition, there were some race day technicalities that we could not control which penalized one of our boats. But in light of these ominous challenges, both boats had amazing races in the 500M and 200 M events against strong adult and college teams from Berkeley, Irvine, Los Angeles, and even Arizona. We took the bronze in the MIxed A Championship in the 500M event and the gold in the Mixed D Championship in the 200M event.
All in all, we not only surpassed our expectations and proved to everyone that the UC San Diego Dragon Boat Team is one of the best dragon boat teams in California. But we also demonstrated what it mean to be a Triton Athlete: to work hard against all odds and to constantly strive to do our best.
