Georgetown Men's Crew Heads South for Winter Training Trips

Dec. 31, 2012

The Georgetown University heavyweight and lightweight men’s crew teams will be spending the first part of the new year in southern destinations, training in Columbia, South Carolina, and Tampa, Florida, respectively.

"Both men’s teams are looking forward to getting back out on the water and spending time together," heavyweight assistant coach Michael Guerrieri notes. “It is a great opportunity for the teams to begin to prepare for our Eastern Sprints dual racing season on the horizon.”

Both squads are coming off strong fall season results. The Georgetown heavies finished off the fall with a 9th out of 49 placing in the heavyweight eight and a best-ever 5th place out 47 in the heavyweight four at the Princeton Chase. Also at the Chase, the lightweights finished in the top 15 of the field in the lightweight eight event.

Heavyweight senior Mike Blommer had this to offer about the upcoming training: “The Princeton Chase was a strong showing for the team as we wrapped up the fall season. The speed we showed will serve as an excellent motivator as we head south to take some welcome on-the-water strokes and begin the transition into the winter season”.

Lightweight Captain Chan Mahaney noted: “The G150 squad gained valuable experience this fall and had fun in our last regatta of the season. Our last few weeks on the water were productive. We can focus on what we learned from the Princeton Chase and use it to find some speed in Florida before we hit the ergs for winter training”.

The Georgetown Men’s winter training trip will last until January 8th, when they return to Georgetown for the beginning of the new semester.
