Now in his third season at Georgetown, Coach Guerrieri has already made an impact on the Hilltop. Last year, his freshman eight made Georgetown men's crew history by reaching the finals for the first time at the Eastern Sprints. The Hoyas' freshman eight raced to a best ever fifth place finish. Four of the freshmen from the top eight went on to compete in the Prince Albert Cup at the Henley Royal Regatta, finishing in the top eight out of 41 crews that entered. Coach Guerrieri arrived at Georgetown from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., where he coached the freshman team for three years. Prior to his stint at Navy, he served as the head coach at Hobart College for three years from 2002-2005. His Hobart crews totaled three medals at the Intercollegiate Rowing Association National Championship and won titles at both the New York State Championship and the Head of the Charles Regatta. Guerrieri also received Liberty League Coach of the Year accolades in each of his final two seasons. He began his coaching career in 1998 at Holy Spirit High School in Absecon, N.J. He moved to the collegiate level the following year as the coach of the Michigan freshman team. His freshman eight crews at Michigan won Big Ten titles in 2001 and 2002 and placed second at the 2002 IRA Regatta. Guerrieri himself competed at the Junior World Championship in 1987 and 1988 and at the 1989 Henley Royal Regatta in England. He also earned a bronze medal at the 1990 Intercollegiate National Rowing Championship as a member of the UCLA varsity eight crew.
