Waco Rowing Center pitching state champs at Tradinghouse

A Philadelphia native who likes the water in McLennan County floated an idea past county commissioners Tuesday, one that could bring 2,500 rowing competitors and their families to the area in late April.

Waco Rowing Center Executive Director Matthew Scheuritzel said his group wants to bring the Texas Rowing Championship to Tradinghouse Lake, a reservoir about a 15-minute drive from downtown Waco. He said the event could draw more than 2,000 rowing enthusiasts and “thousands” of friends, family members and spectators to the county.
