Not many locals would hit the open water in November, but 15-year-old Gideon Koehring does it for sport.

Koehring, a sophomore at Haywood Early College, was one of four rowers in a boat that competed at the Head of Hooch Regatta — the second largest rowing regatta in the world — on Sunday, Nov. 5, in Chatanooga, Tennessee.

Koehring’s boat placed second out of 33 entries in the Men’s Novice Four division, earning a silver medal. The other members of his team were Jack Fleming, the crew’s coxswain, Mason Heth, stroke seat, Maddox Linen, two seat and Levi McCormack, bow seat.

Koehring is a member of Asheville Youth Rowing Association which conducts a program training at Lake Julian.

On Sunday, November 5, 2023, Gideon Koehring and his crewmates from Asheville Youth Rowing Association won a Silver medal in the Men’s Novice Four event at the 2023 Head of the Hooch, the second largest rowing regatta in the world.
