Strong Showing For Rowing At The Head Of The Occoquan
Nov. 3, 2013
FAIRFAX, Va. - The Loyola University Maryland rowing team took to the water in Fairfax Station, Va., for the Head of the Occoquan Regatta on Saturday.
“I was pleased with the enthusiasm and competitiveness the men showed today,” said Head Coach Al Ramirez. “Our men’s squad is headed in the right direction. It is clear which programs we will need to catch up to during independent training during our winter indoor training season. I think our men are eager to rise to that challenge.”
The men’s lightweight four recorded the top finish for Loyola, coming in second ahead of George Mason and New York Maritime College. Stroke Walter Horan, Robert Moore, Craig MacAdams, Theodore Fortier and cox Lindsay Superczynski crossed the finish line in 17:57.71.
Out of 32 crews, Loyola’s four “A” boat finished 13th in the men’s collegiate four race. Stroked by captain Joe Wawrzynski, the Greyhounds finished with a time of 18:16.75.
“The crew had difficulties maintaining the power needed to close the gap on the top-three boats, but did finish ahead of “B” boats from Army, Penn State, Pittsburgh, and Maryland,” Ramirez said.
In the same race, the “B” crew of Michael Blume, Chris Hartfod, Christopher Carpenter, James McCarron, and cox Amanda Adsit took 21st in 19:06.67. Blume debuted in the stroke seat, and helped the boat achieve consistent pressure and boat speed, passing a number of teams along the race.
The men’s eight finished strong, despite loosing a few seconds on the first 100-degree turn. Less than half a second separated 9th-11th place, as Loyola finished 10th, ahead of New York Maritime College. The Greyhounds clocked a time of 16:28.26.
After creating program history last week, Eleni Papadatos continued to carve her name into Loyola’s record books, becoming the first female Greyhound to medal in a solo event. The sophomore rower took third in the novice singles race, with a time of 25:15.02.
