Crew - Varsity
2018 Season Recap
This spring racing season was a challenging one for the SP Crewsaders. Frustrating weather conditions limited the team to a mere 26 days of water practice out of a possible 50. Chances to race were limited as well due to many regattas cancellations based on the aforementioned weather.
That being said, the athletes and coaching staff persevered and much was accomplished in a very short period of time. The novice 8, crewed by Ethan Bunney (coxswain) Maximo McCarty, Robert Scheu, Trevor Schreibeis, McLean Schweizer, Maurice Simmons, Loki Baum, Noah Pavo, and Nick Boo, fought hard in their only official race of the season and placed 3rd at the Maryland State Championships, followed up by a gold medal performance in the Baltimore City championships the next weekend.
The junior varsity 8+, crewed by coxswain Logan Danker, Sam Myrick, Sam Hedeman, Jarrett Daffern, James Eberwein, Jack Maher, Patrick McGinnis, Will Hudson, and Griffin Dunn raced to a 5th place finish in the state.
The junior varsity 4+ B, crewed by coxswain Chin Mushambo, Sam Myrick, Drew Genuit, Miles Arbaugh, and Patrick McCusker rowed to a 3rd place finish and also took first place in the Baltimore City Championships. T
The junior varsity 4+ A, crewed by coxswain Ryan Silverman, Doug Bartlett, Graham Preston, Ian Coleman, and Dave Mutascio annihilated the collected field in the JV4+ event, winning first by almost 40 seconds over the second place crew.
The JV 4+ continued its season’s success at the Stotesbury Cup Regatta, this year hosted in Camden, NJ due to weather issues in Philadelphia. Switching coxswain Chin Mushambo into the boat, the crew was well-prepared and eager, but rough conditions and interference by another team during the time trial resulted in a 16th place finish out of a total of 65 event entries. The boys were 6 seconds out of moving on the semi-finals and should be congratulated on a very strong finish to a very challenging season.
