Men's Varsity 8 Defends Title At Mid-Atlantic Championships
May 7, 2006
Fairfax, Va. - Loyola's men's Varsity 8 repeated as champions in closest race of the year. In the grand final (top 6) which was predicted to be no more than eight seconds difference between 1st and 6th, Loyola's 8 of Devin Marsicovetere, Tom Scida, Rob von Hagen, Doug Brown, Ed Garnett, Jack Vitanovec, Cody Kishur and Dan Reardon had to put out their best performance of the year to top their ever improving opponents.
In the championship race, William and Mary pushed hard from the start, even taking the lead at one point a few hundred meters from the finish before finishing a mere 0.72 seconds back. George Mason and Maryland finished 3rd and 4th respectively with Johns Hopkins and Mary Washington finishing 5th and 6th.
The Loyola men's JV8 earn gold medals as well, finishing ahead of Maryland, Virginia Tech and New Jersey. Nick Kiniry , Zach Reichenbach, Jon Searls, Kyle Sanphy, Dave Rock, Matt Falkowski, Matt Spallluzzi and Kevin Murawski rowed the course in 6:19.1 to take the championship over Maryland 3.7 seconds back.
The women's V8 fail to defend the championship in the Division 1 category, but did earn the bronze medal behind the champions George Mason and close second, Mary Washington University. The 8 led by Nikki Yaeger and Lauren Opalenski rowed well but seemed to just be overpowered by physically stronger crews.
The womens' JV 8, led by Nina McHugh, fielded a new line-up and was able to secure a second place finish just 6.6 seconds behind Mary Washington University.
The women's Novice 8, led by Lily Augustus also earned bronze medal. They finished about 10 seconds behind fast crews from William and Mary and George Mason, but finished ahead of Virginia tech, Maryland and Penn State in the grand final.
The men's Novice 4 led by Carl Jenkins finished fourth overall, missing the bronze medal by a mere 0.2 seconds but beating Old Dominion and Penn state convincingly. Catholic University won the event in 7:05.2, followed by Johns Hopkins and Wentworth in the 6 boat grand final.
