Team captain and lightweight varsity rower, Ronald Reyes-DiTraglia participated in Long Beach Rowing Association’s first Bay Series of 2023. He has been regularly training in a single in the afternoons, as well as occasionally teaching a novice rower how to scull in the mornings. He sculled the five-thousand-meter head race in a Fluidesign single with a time of twenty-three minutes and fifty-four point six seconds, overtaking four boats and beating two master singles. As the team captain, he sets an excellent example of commitment and perseverance for the rest of the team.
