ROWING CHAMPS . . . Menlo-Atherton High senior Katie Kelly and recent Woodside grad Makayla Karr-Warner rowed off with a national title at the USRowing Youth National Championships this past weekend in Oak Ridge, Tenn. The two, who compete for NorCal Rowers, won the Lightweight Women's Doubles. Racing started on Friday and continued Saturday and Sunday in high heat and humidity. Elsewhere in the meet, which attracted hundreds of rowers from around the nation, Sacred Heart Prep grad Danni Struck raced two of her USRowing National Team teammates (from last summer) for the title of fastest female junior sculler in the nation. Struck came away with the bronze medal in the women's single. In less than an hour, she did something rarely done at national championship regatta when she won a second bronze medal in a second event — the open weight double with Stanford Junior Crew teammate Victoria Wallace. Struck was just one of five double medalists out of the 3,000 racers during the weekend. She'll row for Cal this coming school season while on scholarship.
