Women's Novice Four Earns Gold At Mid-Atlantic Championships
May 6, 2012
FAIRFAX, Va. - The Loyola University Maryland men's and women's rowing teams notched strong performances at the Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Championships on Sunday in Fairfax, Va., including a first-place finish from the women's novice four.
The men's and women's novice four boats were both very impressive at the regatta, with the women's novice four taking first in the Grand Final.
The crew that consisted of coxswain Olivia Camusi, Kathleen McCarthy, Elizabeth Murphy, Shannon Connelly and Kathleen Varello, won its heat in 7:53.50, and then won the Grand Final by almost six seconds over Maryland with a time of 7:36.20.
The men had two boats in the novice four races. The boats were paired in the same heat and both went on to qualify for the Grand Final.
Women's varsity four finished second in the finals, beating out teams from Susquehanna, Maryland and American with a time of 7:40.99. The group of Andrea Almeida, Clara Coleman, Kathleen Sweeney and Abigail Thompson only finished behind first-place VCU.
The Greyhounds raced two men's varsity four boats, with the `A' boat qualifying for the Grand Final and the `B' boat getting into the Petite Final.
The men's `A' crew of coxswain Thomas Quinn, Jordan Mastera, Ryan Walsh Joe Wawrzynski and Christopher Golon finished third in its preliminary heat, and followed that with a second-place finish in the Grand Final in a time of 7:00.79. The boat beat out teams from New York Maritime, Rutgers Camden, University of Mary Washington and Susquehanna.
The `B' crew took fourth in the Petite Final in a time of 7:30.29.
"We were glad to see us medaling in every event today," said head coach Al Ramirez. "The regatta gave the younger athletes a chance to shine in a championship format and they did just that."
The Greyhounds are next in action at the Dad Vails on Saturday and Sunday May 11 and 12.
