St. Francis Dragon Boat Team Races at Waterfront Park

By Bob Jones, High School Chinese Teacher

The St. Francis River City Wyverns Dragon Boat Team had a fantastic time on Saturday at Waterfront Park in the Louisville Dragon Boat Festival. 16 teams competed and we are happy to say that the Wyverns finished sixth this year, an improvement over last year. Five veteran paddlers welcomed an enthusiastic group of new team members. We want to thank the WKU Confucius Institute and Terrill Martin for sponsoring our boat.

Team members were High School students Josh Arnett, Jack Baize, Sam Borden, Lila Brown, Hanna Cobb, Charley Drew-Wolak, Nan Elpers, Olivia Ford, Clay Foye, Jesse Lanier, Owen McLaughlin, Scott Morrison, Justin Strothman, and Henry Wang; Goshen faculty Jason Chlopek; and High School faculty/staff Bob Jones, Julie Leidner, Juan Ramirez, Brian Ray, Danielle Tracey, and David Word.  Many thanks to the parents and siblings who came out to cheer us on and brought drinks and snacks for everyone.
