Women’s rowing gets boat in Head of Charles Regatta

The women’s rowing team will split itself between Boston and Philadelphia on Saturday. A single boat will be competing in the Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston, while the rest of the team will be racing to benefit the Philadelphia Children’s Foundation

According to new coach Rebecca Smith Grzybowski, the Head of Charles Regatta is one of the world’s premier rowing events, featuring thousands of competitors.

“Getting an entry into the Regatta is very competitive,” Grybowski said. “This year we managed to get an entry.”

The Owls will be entering a Club Four event which will run Saturday afternoon.

The lineup in Boston will include sophomore coxswain-Ellie Oken, senior stroke seat-Paige O’Sullivan, senior third seat Claudia Loeber, senior second seat Joanna Sutor, and junior bow Kara Carson.

As for the rest of the Owls, they will be participating in the Philadelphia Children’s Foundation 2.25 Regatta.  Proceeds will benefit the education of Philadelphia youth.
