NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – The Georgetown men’s crew team wrapped up the fall portion of its schedule at the Rutgers Fall Classic Regatta this past Saturday. The race, which is run on the Raritan River, is an annual event designed to showcase the freshman squads of each program and was expanded this year to include varsity fours to the event.

Georgetown’s Varsity Four “B” crew was the highlight of the day for the Blue and Gray, winning the Varsity Four race in a time of 13:51. The Hoyas crossed the finish line eight seconds ahead of the crew from Bucknell. Josie Moore coxswained the boat for the Hoyas while Bram Ouweleen (Evaston, Ill./Evaston Township), William Halle (Dallas, Texas/Cistercian Prep), Phillip Miller (Greenwich, Conn./Brunswick) and Jameson Nelson (Wilmette, Ill./New Trier) did the rowing.

In the same race, the Hoyas’ “A” boat took fifth in 14:13. With the times of the “A” and “B” times added up, Georgetown came in first as a team in the Varsity Four event, defeating Patriot League foe Navy by an eight second margin, 28:04 to 28:12. The Hoyas’ “C” and “D” crews finished just one second apart from each other in 14:31 and 14:32 to place seventh and eighth, respectively

In the Freshman Eight race, the Georgetown “A” boat finished in a tie for fifth with a time of 13:34. The crew was coxswained by James Shearman (Ellicott City, Md./Mt. Hebron) and rowed by Chris Cacace (Yonkers, N.Y./Hackley School), Hayden Pascal (Greenwich, Conn./Taft School), Robert Danziger (Lincoln, Mass./Belmont Hill), John Oswald (Greenwich, Conn./Greenwich), Carson Yates (Oklahoma City, Okla./Heritage Hall), Devin Baker (Glenelg, Md./McDonogh School), Nakul Makkad (Fullerton, Calif./Fairmont Prep), and Yatpang Cheung (Duluth, Ga./Peach Tree Ridge).


 

 

Georgetown’s “B” squad placed 12th in 14:10 to give the Hoyas a combined score 27:44 for the Freshman Eight event, good for a fourth place finish.

“This race provides a great opportunity for our freshman rowers to get some head racing experience,” noted Hoyas’ assistant coach Mike Guerrieri. “For eight of our athletes this was their first ever rowing competition.”

Georgetown will next take to the waters in the spring.
