Phillips Murrah’s rowing team Law & Oarder ended the Fall 2019 season on top, placing second in the annual regatta competition.
The team competed on Oct. 4 at the 2019 Oklahoma Regatta Festival held at the OKC Boathouse District and achieved a 500-meter run of 2:00:06, up five seconds from last year.
“Another great season in the books,” said Deena Baker, Legal Assistant and Law & Oarder team captain. “We had a few new team members this season which is always exciting, and then to top it off with another medal after a lot of hard work.
“Friday night was a blast, being in a neck-in-neck race in the finale between First and Third Place. Way to go team Law & Oarder!”
In all eleven seasons the Firm’s rowing team has competed, team members consisted of both attorneys and staff members.
“This being my first season on the rowing team, I was thrilled to stand on the winners’ podium after a hard fought race,” Attorney Martin J. Lopez III said. “Being a part of the rowing team was a phenomenal opportunity to compete alongside my coworkers against other Oklahoma City companies.
“There’s so much excitement about the end-of-season regatta—it was a thrilling experience to take part in it.”
The team will resume practice in the Spring for the Stars & Stripes Festival in June 2020.
