Essex Junior A Men's Quad Takes Third at Club National Championship

Camden, NJ – July 19, 2008 – The Men’s Junior A Quad from Essex Rowing Club, Inc.’s Junior Sculling Development Camp took third in a blistering final at the USRowing Club National Championships today. The winners, the Mexican Rowing Federation, rowed a 6:10.68, a second ahead of Malvern Prep. Essex came in six seconds later at 6:17.52 to take the bronze medal over Union Boat Club, Crescent Boat Club, and Quad City Rowing Association.

Though the tailwind conditions favored lighter, more experienced crews, Essex came out in second place through nearly the entire first thousand meters behind the MRF, but with Malvern and Union both pressing. Rough water helped exacerbate some rough rowing through the middle of the race, however, and both competitors passed Essex as they approached the five-hundred meters to go marker. As Malvern honed in on the Mexican Rowing Federation, Essex chased down Union and passed them with less than fifty meters to go to secure third place and a prominent spot on the summer rowing circuit.

Earlier in the afternoon the Men’s Intermediate Lightweight Double secured a spot in the finals for Sunday. This matched the feat of the Men’s Junior A Double, which had done so on Friday. Intermediate rowers are typically in college or beyond; for Tom McElwee, who just graduated from high school, and Tom Mickler, who has a year left, it was quite a race. Undine Boat Club had beaten them by over five seconds two weeks earlier at the Independence Day Regatta, and today they returned the favor, finishing second to GMS Rowing Center in their heat while Undine finished fourth, also behind South Niagara Rowing Club.

Both boats race in their finals Sunday, with the lightweights racing at 9:45 closely followed by the Junior A Double of Donald Leatherwood and Corentin Morel at 9:59. Results can be followed live at www.racetrak.com.
