HydraHeads = H-3-O; local team wins third Dragon Boat title since 2009
BEMIDJI -- For the HydraHeads, it was a day of firsts and thirds.
For the third time since 2009, the team, captained by Mark Walters, won the Gold Division of the Lake Bemidji Dragon Boat Festival. And for the first time since the event began eight years ago, the HydraHeads' trophy-winning time was the fastest in a day that saw 37 separate races, each with at least two teams.
"This is incredible," Walters said.
