COACH YUNIAN WINS USROWING FAN'S CHOICE JUNIOR COACH OF THE YEAR!
Dear Belen Crew Family,
We are delighted to announce that our Head Coach, Yunian Cabrera has just been named as the recipient of the most prestigious award in junior rowing! He has been named Junior Coach of the Year by the USRowing Association. In winning this national award, Coach Yunian prevailed over junior coaches all across the country from both schools and clubs. Coach will receive his award at the Golden Oars Awards Ceremony held at the New York Athletic Club in New York City on November 17, 2016.
This tremendous accolade is truly well deserved given the program’s success and recognizes his endearing hard work and commitment to the sport, our athletes and our school.
We are also very proud of, and offer our congratulations to alumnus, Ben Gilbert who was short listed as one of only five athletes nationally nominated for Junior Athlete of the Year. Ben stoked the lightweight 8+ in 2016 to win gold at the San Diego Crew Classic, Scholastic Nationals and Youth Nationals, and is currently rowing at the University of Delaware.
Congratulations Coach Yunian and Ben! We are all so proud of you.
