Casitas Rowing is hosting a team of Olympic hopefuls trying for a spot in Rio this summer. A group of dedicated rowers are training this week at Lake Casitas in hopes of securing a bid to the summer Olympics. Their coach, Dan Mcgill of SoCal Scullers in Long Beach, was looking for a venue where they could train and he chose Lake Casitas. Many reasons were factored into his decision but the most compelling, he said, was Lake Casitas being the site for the 1984 games and the possibility of it hosting again in 2024.
