Crews Show Well At The Occoquan Sprints
April 7, 2014
FAIRFAX, Va. - The men's varsity four finished first in the third flight on Sunday to guide the Loyola University Maryland rowing teams to a strong showing at the Occoquan Sprints at Sandy Run Park.
The men's varsity four crossed the finish line in 7:07.97, out-racing crews from Susquehanna University, UMBC, James Madison and North Carolina-Wilmington.
Coming off a strong performance last weekend at the Murphy Cup, the lightweight four of Emily Arcese, Walter Horan, Craig MacAdams, Theodore Fortier and Robert Moore finished third in 7:05.59. The Greyhounds came in ahead of crews from William and Mary, Liberty and VCU.
The men's varsity eight improved on its finish from last week, taking third with a time of 6:24.54. The crew shaved off over a minute from last Saturday's race.
Like the men, the women's varsity eight also made great strides over the week.
"As true novices, the main six have a lot to learn," said Head Coach Al Ramirez. "Racing the varsity category is a rather harsh learning environment. Today's conditions were clean and warm, encouraging the freshmen to relax more and improve their timing and rhythm."
Kelly Gregitis, Carly McMahon, Gabrielle Campitiello, Megan Rabenberg, Amanda Fleck, Eleni Papadatos, Dakota Corvalan and Lindsay Superczynki beat crews from Virginia Tech and James Madison to take fourth with a time of 7:58.86.
The women's varsity four finished second in the petite final, clocking a final race time of 8:34.51.
The crews return to action on Saturday, April 12, competing in the Knecht Cup.
