BOSTON, Mass. – Following nearly three weeks off the water due to the government shutdown, the Georgetown men’s crew team returned to action this past weekend at the prestigious Head of the Charles Regatta on the Charles River in Boston, Mass.
The Hoyas had not been on the water for nearly three weeks as their boathouse was unavailable to them due to the government shutdown. Without any time to practice before making the trip north, Georgetown took on some of the best competition in the nation on Sunday.
On a warm day that featured a strong head wind, the Blue and Gray competed in three events – the Men’s Championship Fours, the Men’s Lightweight Fours and the Men’s Lightweight Eights.
In the championship race, the Hoyas’ four boat crossed the finish line in 17:41.831, good for 15th place out of 20 entries. Coxswained by Bethany Biszko (Tiverton, R.I./St. Mary’s Academy Bay View), the boat also contained Benjamin Holtzmuller (Charlotte, N.C./Providence Day), Jameson Nelson (Wilmette, Ill./New Trier), Phillip Miller (Greenwich, Conn./Brunswick) and William Halle (Dallas, Texas/Dallas Jesuit).
The lightweight four crew took 10th overall out of 17 boats, finishing in a time of 18:15.999. However, less than five seconds separated the Hoyas from a seventh-place finish. The Georgetown boat featured John Walsh (Riverdale, N.Y./Fordham Prep), Peter Mangan (Buffalo, N.Y./Canisius HS), Cameron Ward, Andrew Greenough (Newton, Mass./Belmont Hill School) and was coxswained by Christa Choy.
Finally, in the lightweight eight race, the Blue and Gray put together a 14th place finish, out of 17 crews, in a time of 16:13.733. Along with coxswain Max Menard, the Georgetown boat consisted of Luke Prioleau (Palo Alto, Calif./Palo Alto), Jack Sardinia, Gerard Thiers (Langhorne, Pa./LaSalle College HS), Michael Davidson (Southport, Conn./Choate Rosemary Hall), Paul Wrenn (Jacksonville, Fla./Stanton College Prep), Stephen Kwong (Crofton, Md./St. Mary’s), Tom Brzozowki (Cleveland, Ohio/St. Ignatius) and Connor Smith (Northfield, Ill./New Trier)
Georgetown returns to the water next weekend with the Princeton Chase, in Princeton, N.J., on Sunday, Oct. 27.
