April 9, 2012

Washington DC -

The 16th ranked Georgetown University men's crew completed the first day of the GW invitational regatta with a win over UC San Diego by 6.8 seconds. The varsity eight line-up of Coxswain Kerri McKie, Stroke Matthew Stewart, Henry Hoffstot, John Absher, Mike Blommer, Mike Hennessy, Tim Broughton, Kyle Textor, and Alex Willen clocked the second fastest time of the day, finishing in 5:41.8.

 

“We felt like today’s race was a solid step forward,” noted Georgetown captain Henry Hoffstot. “We’ll have to continue to stay focused on bringing sharpness to our rowing in the races tomorrow to perform well.”

Also racing Friday afternoon for Georgetown were the 1st and 2nd freshman eights and the second varsity eight. The Georgetown 2V finished 4.4 seconds behind UCSD in 5:54.4. The 1F also rowed a tightly contested race to finish second to UCSD by 4.4 seconds.

 

Georgetown will continue tomorrow at the GW Invite on the Potomac River when it faces #10 Cornell University and #6 Navy.
