Head of the Lake 2013

Coming back strong from their races at Portland Fall Classic, the MV4+ began the chase after two UW boats, and holding off UO for the duration of the race. Congratulations to Jacobe Sell and Myles Hollowed, who came in first in the M2+. The MN8+ gave a strong performance, wrapping up the fall racing season just in time for winter training to begin.

Portland Fall Classic 2013

Seattle U Men’s Crew squared up in the 2013 Portland Fall Classic in the MV4+ and the MN8+ boats. The varsity boat had a strong chase, and the novice showed competitors they were a force to be reckoned with. We look forward to seeing many of the same team on the water at Head of the Lake 2013!

Head of the Troll 2013

After two practices Seattle U Men’s Crew had their first regatta on their home course. Jacobe Sell and Myles Hollowed raced the pair while Matt Sneed and Declan Connor-Boyle raced in a double in the chase style Head of the Troll Regatta. Jacobe and Myles had a strong showing in their first race in the pair. Matt and Declan, in their second day of sculling, finished without flipping or crashing into any other boats or walls. Both boats were pleased with their performance and enjoyed being back in competition, leaving them excited for the upcoming season.

The next regatta will be the Portland Fall Classic on October 27th, which will be the first for incoming novice rowers. We are always accepting new rowers and are excited for the new additions to the team. We will be having information sessions for anyone interested in joining crew on September 25th and  26th as well as October 9th meeting at 6:00P.M. at the Bellarmine Turnaround on Seattle University Campus.

2013 ACRA’s Results

Congratulations to Dan Harrison and Chris Schultz as national champions! M2x- with a great performance in grand finals, and an impressive performance from MNL W4+.

“Couldn’t be more proud of the boys of SU Crew, from the dedicated MNL4+ racing at their first national championship, the men’s double making it to grands in their first as well, and to the men’s pair, both seniors, who finally, after two years of placing third at ACRAs, raced to an awesome Gold (beating a crew who beat… them at Vails in Philly). As they finished their last stroke of their senior year, and as the cheering died down as the rest of the field crossed the line, I thought I was going to turn into the emotional puddle of pride that I became at the boat dedication at WIRAs in 2010. Much to my relief, everything behaved after a few minutes of eye leaking, face contorting, and throat choking-up. Proud of you guys.”
