America's Oldest Rowing Club
Ever Since 1838

Within the Youth: 2 Golds, 1 Silver, 3 Bronze at New England HS & Jr. Championship

October 9/Worcester, MA: The combined Narragansett Boat Club and Bay View contingent did a great job today at this high school regatta held on Lake Quinsigamond which is wedged in between Worcester and Shrewsbury. The race distances were 2.5-mile for sweeps and 2.0 miles for sculling. In addition, the sweeps programs are divided by schools (HS) or clubs (Jr) whose rowers come from many different schools. Literally leading the way was the newly formed junior men’s quad which posted a time of 11:42.6. Not only did Cam Benavent, Charlie Markert, Max Eleftherio, and Jonathan Greenberg win by a significant margin, they also posted the fastest time of the day, outpacing all of the eights. This is an amalgam of scullers who have had two different coaches: Peter Wilhelm (Max and Jon) and Joan Brush (Cam and Charlie). They will be racing under Peter’s direction as a coxed quad at the Head of the Charles.

Our girls have their leaders as well. NBC’s Lucy Hamilton and Grace Fay easily won their race with a time of 14:16.7. They will also be racing at the HOCR. The next fastest boat was NBC’s Emma Vieten and Hannah Glucksman. Within the doubles competition, there was also a good showing by Jackson Mayer and Jack Stone who finished 3rd of 17. Aidan Novis and Adam Dolce placed fourth in the same event, improving upon their 2015 finish. Mihail Kiselev did a great job as well finishing 4th in the Men’s Junior 1X. Even though this was his first race, he started last and pushed his way toward the head of the pack. In the sweeps competition, the Narragansett 1st Varsity Eight finished 5th with a time of 18:48. St. Mary Academy – Bay View did very well, taking 3rd of 13 in the Women’s HS 1st Varsity Eights and 4th of 11 in the Women’s 1st Novice Fours. Congratulations to their coaches, Head Coach Brent Basso and Lindsey Sanford, his Assistant!

In most cases these scullers and rowers have been rowing throughout the year. They sustained their stamina and developed their technique on the indoor rowing machines in the winter, then returned to scull or row in the spring, and many also rowed through the summer. Mileage does make champions, but the champions develop if their work is done under good guidance from coaches. Many thanks to Peter Wilhelm, Lisa Evans, Joan Brush, and Amy Abbot who have been working with our competitive groups. This includes bringing this group of young women and men to this regatta. Congratulations, too, go to our parents who have given these young rowers the support they need to succeed.
