Despite suffering from a paucity of practice on frozen Cayuga Inlet in recent weeks, the men’s heavyweight, men’s lightweight, and women’s crews will have to hit the water running tomorrow when their respective seasons start.
“It’s a little early [in the season] to be racing,” said heavyweight head coach Dan Roock.
“It’s not what you want,” added lightweight coach Todd Kennett about how bad weather has disrupted the teams’ practice schedules and set them back.
Protests aside, however, come tomorrow the crews will have to begin racing. The heavyweights host Michigan, the lightweights take on Navy, and the women face George Washington.
According to the coaches, all the races should be competitive and good early season tests.
The heavyweight first varsity boat will feature Donald Lee, Milos Vujanic, Connor Morhardt, Ken Jurkowski, Miles Hinhelerm Jordan Siegel, Alejandro Gomez, and Sanjay Vachani.
The lightweight squad sports Adit Sahasrabudhe, Joe Kiely, Jason Weinstein, Jon Zelken, Mike Cody, Simon Saddleton, Bernie Murphy, Nazeef Smith, Scott Triolo.
And the women’s crew will race with Vicky Leary, Crystal Kline, Ann Holmes, Allison Horne, Lauren Gentile, Fran O’Rourke, Ashley Morse and Flora Felsovalyi.
