Three Second-Place Finishes For Rowing At The Murphy Cup
March 30, 2013
CHERRY HILL, N.J. - The Loyola University Maryland rowing teams came away with a strong finish at the Murphy Cup Regatta on the Cooper River.
“Overall I was pleased with the efforts of our young crew today,” said head coach Al Ramirez. “It’s not easy psychologically to go up against larger teams in small boat lineups with a young crew.”
The women’s varsity four boat of Andrea Almeida, Eleni Papadatos, Kathleen Sweeney, Clara Coleman, and cox Lindsay Superczynski had their best showing of the season. The quad finished second ahead of strong teams in George Mason, Drexel, and Williams.
“I can see the potential in this crew. They had a strong early effort, but ultimately fell behind,” said Ramirez.
The women’s novice four boat had their best finish of the season, coming in behind Colgate with a time of 9:18.08.
Rounding out the races for the Greyhounds were the men’s lightweight four, which qualified for the finals, but finished the last race in fourth with a time of 7:36.88.
The team returns to action Sunday, April 7 in Fairfax, Va., for the Occoquan Sprints.
