By Hugh O’Brien: The Galen Eagles have solidified their position as canoeing champions in their respective category with their consecutive wins in the Belikin La Ruta Maya Belize River Challenge. The team secured first place in the Mixed Category in 2023, adding to their previous victory in the Intramural Category in 2022.
The 2023 Belikin La Ruta Maya Belize River Challenge was a grueling race, but the Eagles persevered and crossed the finish line with a time of 19 hours 43 minutes and 4 seconds. This impressive feat showcases the hard work and determination of the team, who have been training and preparing for months.
Despite flipping on the third day of the race, the Galen Eagles persevered finishing the race within the top 15 overall, and making their fellow students, their school and their country proud with their consecutive victories. The success of the team, comprised of Roxy Lemus Orellana, Sheffan Hemmans and Michael Moreno, has inspired many, and they have become a source of inspiration for young canoers who hope to follow in their footsteps.
In a social media post, Galen expressed a special thank you to Jorge Morales and Owen Requena who are members of the service team.
As the team looks ahead to the next Belikin La Ruta Maya Belize River Challenge in 2024, they have their sights set on another first-place win. With their impressive track record and their determination, it’s safe to say that the Galen Eagles are a force to be reckoned with in the world of canoeing.
