With the heat index hovering around 110 degrees, retired surgeon Ned Goodrich brought a whole different kind of heat to the 35th annual all-adaptive BAYADA Regatta on Saturday, August 13. The 91-year-old from Ardmore placed first in his race. For him, rising above daunting challenges has become a way of life, and he has faced much more serious opponents in the past.

He’s battled three kinds of cancers, a heart attack, and a series of small strokes, but it was a massive stroke in 1980 that left him unable to continue his practice.
