Phillips Murrah’s rowing team Law & Oarder completed the Summer 2019 season with a neck-in-neck race.
The team competed on June 29 at the 2019 Stars and Stripes River Festival held at the OKC Boathouse District, finishing a 500-meter run in 2:10.3—less than a second from clinching Third Place.
“First of all, I want to thank the Firm for being supportive and giving us as a team the opportunity to represent Phillips Murrah,” said Deena Baker, Legal Assistant and Law & Oarder team captain. “This last season had many challenges with weather and all, but the team as a whole never gave up.
“We didn’t quite pull out that win we hoped for at the regatta, but it was a super close race and I couldn’t be more proud of the progress we made as a team.”
In all ten seasons the Firm’s rowing team has competed, team members consisted of both attorneys and staff members.
“This was my first year rowing with the team, and getting to practice regularly with everyone was a great way to break down the divide between attorneys and staff and a great team building experience,” said Kat Mach, Legal Assistant.
The team will resume practice in the Spring for the Stars & Stripes Festival in June 2020.
