The Haddon Township Crew Club braved cold temperatures, high winds, and heavy rain this weekend at the USRowing Mid-Atlantic Youth Championships. Despite the weather ending the weekend early, the club came away with a big win in the varsity quad and solid finishes from the other crews who had the chance to race. By winning their event, Luke Brown, Erik Tingley, Dan McGarry, and Paul Duffy qualified to race in the USRowing Youth National Championship in Sarasota, Florida on June 9th-11th. This event is open to all junior crews, not just scholastic teams. The boys finished 3 seconds ahead of second place Malvern Prep, and 5 seconds ahead of third place Conestoga.
In other races, Ella Clemens put together a solid performance finishing 8th in the womens youth single. Parker Revier and Vince Fitzpatrick also finished 8th overall in the mens youth double event. In the under 17 womens double, Portia Castillo and Erica Peterson finished 10th overall. The Hawks had two crews racing in the mens under 17 double. Jack Mallgrave and Jay Reinert finished 5th and only 5 seconds out of the medals, and Will Neunson and Mike Martino finished 10th. Unfortunately the race was cut short due to weather before the last three crews could race.
The Hawks will head to the Schuylkill River this weekend to face off against 979 entries from 133 high schools from across North America in the Stotesbury Cup Regatta.
