Girls Preparatory School junior Bailey Wood is one of 29 rowers selected for the 2013 USRowing Junior Women's Team High Performance Camp to be held in June at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. The camp program identifies high-potential rowers and "puts them in an environment where they can learn, grow and represent the USA in competitive domestic training and international racing opportunities," according to the invitation. Wood won the girls' 16-18 division of the Tennessee Indoor Rowing Championships in February at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. "This is an important step for consideration in rowing at the Junior World Championships in 2013-14," GPS coach Anders Swanson said in a school release. The camp can lead to the CanAmMex Regatta in Oklahoma City or the USRowing Club Nationals in Camden, N.J.
