Fall Crew Improves on 2017 Results
Derryfield crew had a strong fall season, improving on 2017 results in many events.
Our senior boys' double of Mark Rotering and Max Karpawich won the youth double event at the Textile River Regatta in Lowell, MA, and placed third at the New Hampshire Championships, and 18th at the highly competetive Head of the Fish. The boys’ team is made up of a strong group of young athletes, which allows us to field a deep group of boats in the youth coxed four events. Our top boys’ coxed four placed 14th at Textile (up from 44th in 2017), 12th at NHCs (up from 26th in 2017), and 17th at the Fish (up from 41st in 2017). Our top boys’ novices raced a coxed four at Textile, placing a respectable 9th (up from 11th in 2017), and all novice boys joined together to row a coxed eight at NHCs, placing 20th. The four placed 16th at the Fish (just behind an impressive 10th place finish in 2017).
Having graduated our entire first boat in 2018, the girls’ team is small but mighty. An impressive group of novice girls placed 7th at the Textile (up from 15th in 2017), and combined with our three returning rowers to race a varsity eight at NHCs, placing 14th. They placed 14th at the Fish (up from 29th in 2017).
We are looking forward to a large group returning for spring crew to race in 2,000 meter spring races. The future looks bright!
