ASC Rows Over to Treasure Island
By Ryan Szeto '14
OIn September 15, members of ASC will head over to Treasure Island to compete in the annual International Dragon Boat Festival. Teams from around the world flock over to the Bay Area each year to vie for a coveted gold medal and each year, the ASC dragon boat team spends the six weeks leading up to the IDBF diligently practicing at Lake Merced. Ryan Kau '14 said, "For a lot of the inexperienced members of the team, the first few practices are definitely a struggle. As the process goes on, we grow together as a team and form an amazing bond." According to coach Curtis Wong, "In my 11 years of coaching SI's dragon boat team, this year's bunch has the potential to do some great things. We're going to give our competition everything we've got on September 15!" Plenty of familiar faces should be visible as a plethora of other San Francisco schools including Lowell, Lincoln, Galileo, and Washington high school are scheduled to make appearances. Senior Matthew Ocampo stated, "It's always great when fellow classmates can make it to support us in addition to having a blast with all the other attractions at Treasure Island!"
