Ninth Graders Row to Success
Here's hoping, even expecting, that the names of Gabriella Mancini and Riley McDade will be making many more appearances at the top of rowing results lists.
They're only ninth graders and Sunday on the Schuylkill River, in the fifth Manny Flick event of the spring, they combined to claim first place in the freshman/novice 2X race. Their time was 6:22.20.
In the boys JV 2X, junior Matt Kestenbaum and soph Matt Groshens placed third at 5:29.33.
Other performances of note: senior Tristan Laurencio and junior Mitch Sibson, second in heat in lightweight 2X (5:31.10); senior Steve Flemming, third in heat in varsity 1X (5:36.83); sophs Lucy Alter, Sydney Nixon and Zoe Tierno and junior Maria Perry, sixth overall in JV 4X (5:41.17); and juniors Victoria Watson and Anna Pogrebivsky, fourth in lightweight 2X (6:10.69).
