2014 Barton Bantams

This fall, LCKC's youngest athletes participated in the Barton Bantams Kilometer Challenge. Between August 17th and September 27th, these athletes worked hard to achieve the distance standards set by USA Canoe/Kayak. It is no small feat to paddle hundreds of kilometers in a short 6-week period, especially for such young paddlers, and we are so proud of the athletes who showed their dedication during these weeks of grueling long distance paddles.

Gold (400 kilometers) Owen Ozaki (Kayak Men, 2001) - 404km JR Coleman (Kayak Men, 2000) - 401km Silver (300 kilometers) Owen Farley-Klacik (Kayak Men, 2000) - 339.5km Clay Baker (Kayak Men, 2000) - 325.5km Gracyn Potter (Kayak Women, 2000) - 314km Joshua Burchardt (Kayak Men, 2000) - 307.5km Max Roberts (Kayak Men, 2000) - 303km Saylor Sniatecki (Kayak Women, 2000) - 302km Bronze (200 kilometers) Maggie Bowmar (Kayak Women, 2001) - 263km Andrew Surles (Kayak Men, 2001) - 258km Maddie Cole (Kayak Women, 2001) - 250km Noah Kemp (Canoe Men, 2000) - 233.5km Edward Surles (Canoe Men, 2001) - 220km Kalen Oliveira (Kayak Men, 2002) - 218.5km Lisa Swenson (Kayak Women, 2000) - 218.5km Grace Roberts (Kayak Women, 2002) - 214.5km Walker Peck (Kayak Men, 2002) - 209.5km Drew Deppe (Kayak Men, 2000) - 203.5km Alec Wilson (Kayak Men, 2001) - 200km LCKC Honorable Mention (Pre-bantams over 100km) Ethan Skarda (Kayak Men, 2002) - 139.5km Ethan Deppe (Kayak Men, 2002) - 125.5km Jonathan Ross (Canoe Men, 2002) - 123km Paige Farley-Klacik (Canoe Women, 2002) - 106km

Congratulations to all of the athletes who achieved these difficult standards. We are so proud of the hard work that everyone put in while taking on this challenge. We are definitely looking forward to finding out what our 2015 group of Bantams can do next fall.
