Record Medal Haul for Wolfpack at Midwest Championships
05/13/2017 - Boys Varsity Rowing
Last year, impressive performances by the Wolfpack landed a record for medals won at the Midwest Championship. This year, with the senior class leading the charge and a podium finish from the freshmen/novice squad, the Pack set a new record for medals won as multiple crews again qualify for the National Championships. The freshmen/novice squad started things off with a historic win in the Novice Men’s 8+ event. Stroked by freshmen Kyle Luburic, the crew held off traditional powerhouse St. Ignatius (Cleveland) to cross the finish line two seconds ahead to win bronze. This is the first Midwest Championship medal won by a SICP freshmen/novice crew. The Varsity Lightweight 2x of senior Ethan Young and junior William Braendel won the second bronze medal of the day less than 30 minutes later in a nail-biter of a final. Sitting in fourth place with 400m to go, the duo laid down powerful long strokes to draw even, and then finally pushing their bow ball ahead in the last 3 strokes to win by 1.2 seconds. This is the third Midwest Championship podium finish for Ethan Young. The crew now awaits one of the at-large bids to compete at the Scholastic National Championship in Camden, NJ over Memorial Day weekend.
The Varsity 4+ of seniors Jack Justic, Brian Johnson, Zachary Verghese, and juniors Henry Quinn-Pasin and Ryan Prendergast added again to the medal tally. Last year, this crew won gold in the Junior 4+ event. This year, racing in the senior event, the crew came into the finals with the fastest time in the semi-finals. The boys jumped out of the start to take an early lead on the field. But in this hotly contested race, St. Edwards (Cleveland) and St. Ignatius (Cleveland) drew even. The three crews stayed neck and neck until the final sprint, when St. Edwards pushed ahead. Nevertheless, the boys stayed strong to win bronze. This is the third Midwest Championship podium finish for Zachary Verghese, and the second Midwest Championship podium finish for the other members of the crew. They automatically qualify to compete at the Scholastic National Championship in Camden, NJ over Memorial Day Weekend. In the final event of the day, the Varsity 2- came in as two-time Midwest Champions and looking to three-peat. Junior Blake Stamato and senior Jacob Epstein laid down long solid strokes to lead the pack before unleashing a sprint to see them win gold with open water and 7 seconds ahead of the silver medal crew. This is the third consecutive gold in this boat class for SICP and the pair will be heading to Sarasota, FL in June to compete against the top junior athletes at the USRowing Youth National Championships.
