2013 16th Annual SRA Invitational

SARATOGA SPRINGS — The 16th annual Saratoga Invitations is set to host upwards of 1200 teams from the Northeast this Friday, April 26 to Sunday, April 28. After about 900 entries in 2012, the Invitational has continued to see growth, as it becomes more and more renowned as one of the fastest regattas available for competition.

Aside from Saratoga Springs, local teams from Shenendehowa, Niskayuna, Shaker, Albany, Burnt Hills, Stillwater, Ballston Spa, Emma Willard and Scotia-Glenville will be competing amidst the couple thousand athletes who will be in town from states including Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Massachusetts.

As the regattas enter what Saratoga Rowing Association Executive Director Eric Catalano calls one of the most exciting times of the season, Saratoga Springs is sure to be packed with crew athletes and enthusiasts this weekend.

In what is by far the largest Saratoga Invitational to date, the Saratoga Rowing Association is in its second consecutive year of having to make the event span over a period of three days. In addition to the invitational, the Liberty League Championships will also be underway Sunday morning before the invitational starts back up at 9:30 a.m. and goes until about 4:30 p.m.
