5/14/21 - 5/15/21 Stotesbury Cup - STA

By Ted Haley, 05/19/21, 12:30PM EDT


The St. Albans 1st eight competed in the Senior 8 category at the Stotesbury Cup Regatta this past weekend. The crew earned a bronze medal in the final behind St. Joe's Prep of Philadelphia and Walt Whitman of Bethesda. The STA crew rowed out of lane 6 which is notoriously slow, but they bucked traditional wisdom and eked out the 3rd place finish over Dallas Jesuit by .02 seconds. Coach Haley was incredibly impressed with this effort, and said that "a bronze in the Senior 8 out of lane 6 felt like a victory, especially in this year."  This same crew will compete again at the Scholastic Rowing Association Nationals in Philadelphia over Memorial Day weekend to end the season.
