St. Mary's rows to victory in Pittsburgh

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

The St. Mary's rowing crew ended their 2005 season the same way they began, winning medals.

St. Mary's High School wound things up at the Head of the Ohio Regatta in Pittsburgh, PA. on Oct. 1. The 5 km course, with timed starts, begins at the head of the Ohio River and ends on the Allegheny River in the heart of Pittsburgh.

The day began at dawn with the river flooded with fog. The first race began as the fog was lifting to reveal the St. Mary's Women's Open Pair of Jessica Stansfield and Emily Moeller (both of Dundas) taking 3rd place. This was the only high school entry in a race with seven university crews.

In the next race, Men's High School Doubles Matt Jones (Waterdown) and Kyle Stansfield (Dundas) finished with a silver medal in a time of 16:03.19. The Women's High School fours had their best finish since 2002, when they placed 3rd. The crew included Allison Jones, Jenn Witt (both of Waterdown), Nadia Mychailyshyn (Hamilton), Sarah Van Berkel (Millgrove) and coxie Katie Millar(Ancaster).

The morning continued with the Women's High School Novice 8+. The girls took the gold medal in this race for the fourth time in a row. Brianne Misner (Carlisle), Markianna Mychailychyn (Hamilton), Brittney Furtado (Greensville), Jessica Bill (Dundas), Julie Van Berkel (Millgrove), Sarah Herrron, Caitlyn Langille, Nicole Wojick (all of Dundas) and coxie Erin Walters (Greensville) powered the boat.

The afternoon proved to be just as productive as the morning for the St. Mary's team, as the Women's High School Novice 4+ also brought home the gold medal for the fourth year in a row. The boat included Brianne Misner (Carlisle), Markianne Mychailyshyn (Hamilton), Brittney Furtado (Greensville), Jessica Bill (Dundas) and Katie Millar (of Ancaster) as coxie.

Coach Kevin Monaco is very proud of the performance of his crew. He now begins recruiting and training rookies and veterans alike. The indoor season will soon be here, with the first on-water Regatta on Mother's Day at Henley Island, St. Catharines. This year's crew will surely show us why they are the #1 high school rowing crew in North America.
