Daniel R.

Congrats to Daniel R. from Virginia for receiving a Bow Ball It Honors.

Daniel personifies the spirit of the Bow Ball brand - he brings his best to the boathouse, elevates others, works incredibly hard, and is kind. And Daniel is on the rise. As a high school sophomore, Daniel placed 3rd in the Mens U17 1x 2000 meter event at @USRowing National Indoor 2023 Championship in Atlantic City.

Daniel is well positioned to have a strong junior year after coming off a successful summer season at Potomac Boat Club, including winning GOLD in the U17 2x and SILVER in the U17 4x @Summer Nationals. We loved cheering on Daniel and his 4x+ from a very windy Weeks Bridge at HOCR this year.

Congrats, Daniel. We hope that you enjoy your free Bow Ball It Honoree gear. Keep on elevating your everyday best and those around you.

Cheers to Daniel
