Women's Rowing Team Hosted by Baran Family During Weekend Reception

Jan. 9, 2013

WASHINGTON - As the winter turned temperatures colder during the break between semesters, the Georgetown women's rowing team, like other teams, headed south to take advantage of warmer climates and the chance to practice.

While the Hoyas were working out on the Manatee River in Florida, Head Coach Miranda Paris and her team were able to visit the home of Ed Baran (B'54) and his son Ted Baran (B'91).

The Baran's held a reception last weekend for the team at the Lakewood Ranch Country Club in Sarasota, Fla. All 44 members of the team were in attendance at the reception, as well as more than a dozen local alumni.

"The young women on our team were honored by the Baran's generosity and hospitality," Paris said. "We all had a great time and it was a wonderful experience to get welcomed by the local Georgetown community. It was the perfect break for us in the midst of our training."

Paris and her team spent more than a week training twice a day on the Manatee River as they prepare for the spring season.

"The conditions are exceptional for training with long stretches of protected water in a warm, beautiful environment," Paris said. "We're really looking forward to competing this season."
