Rowing Concludes Fall Season At Bill Braxton Memorial Regatta
Nov. 10, 2013
CHERRY HILL, N.J. -
Despite challenging weather conditions with strong cross winds and rough waters, the Loyola University Maryland rowing team gave a solid performance at the Bill Braxton Memorial Regatta.
Due to the weather conditions, many races were canceled or delayed, although all of the Greyhounds' crews were able to race in Sunday's final regatta of the fall season.
"Today was a fairly successful learning day for the team," said Head Coach Al Ramirez. "The elements were challenging today, and the regatta was cancelled due to unsafe wind and water conditions."
In Loyola's first race of the day, the men's open four finished third, with a time of 7:02.29.
Joe Wawrzynski, Craig Spicer, Bryan Carney, Filip Zigic and cox Patrick Flynn edged out New York Maritime "B" by one second, and the on board computer confirmed that the men raced at a higher cadence than yesterday's race by about 0.2 seconds per 500m.
The men's second flight raced a "B' and "C" boat, coming in second and fourth, respectively. The "B" boat finished in a strong second behind an experience Rutgers open alum crew. The Greyhounds recorded a time of 7:05.56, only five seconds behind Rutgers, while the "C" boat finished in 7:56.62.
The women's novice four of Alyssa Villani, Kate Spence, Carly McMahon and Maggie Rabenberg took second ahead of Richard Stockton, in 9:33.27. The women led for most of the race, but an oar got stuck in the water and caused the boat to turn and tip hard to one direction, at that point Scranton passed the Greyhounds for the first place victory.
The men's novice eight boat competed in Loyola's final race of the day, as the Greyhounds took fifth with a time of 8:07.18.
"I was glad that the novice men got a chance to experience a 2k race and get their first race jitters out before heading into winter training," assistant coach Greg Muir said. "Now the men will be more familiar with the 2k race experience, and will help fuel their next few training weeks as well as boost their confidence when we hit the same course in March."
