Rowing Team Finishes Competition At The MAAC Championships
April 27, 2013
WEST WINDSOR, N.J. - Loyola University Maryland rowing teams brought home a combined two second-place finishes at the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championships on Lake Mercer.
A new lineup of Kimberly Seckler, Kathleen Sweeney, Eleni Papadatos, Andrea Almeida, and cox Lindsay Superczynski teamed up for the women’s open four, finishing in second ahead of Fairfield, Marist, and Drake University. The Greyhounds turned in a time of 7:57.76, only .99 seconds behind the first place Iona boat.
“They got off to a great start, marking 34 strokes per minute,” said head coach Al Ramirez. “The crew eventually settled into a manageable rhythm and took the early lead, but by mid-race they were in a three-way tie, ultimately picking it up in the final 300m to secure the second place.”
Rounding out the women’s races, the Greyhounds novice eight finished third with a time of 8:13.60.
On the men’s side, the novice four boat had the strongest finish, coming in fourth ahead of Iona College.
The men’s varsity four of Joe Wawrzysnki, Craig Spicer, Walter Horan, Bryan Carney, and cox Patrick Flynn had a strong showing out of the blocks with their fastest start of the season. The crew ended race in fifth with a time of 7:12.54.
“I was impressed with their start,” Ramirez said. “It came at a price, as the field caught up at the halfway point and the men didn’t have the energy to battle them off.”
