Ithaca Crew Competes at The 50th Head of the Charles!

Regatta: Head of the Charles
Date: October 18th and 19th, 2014
Location: Boston, Massachusetts (Charles River)
Participating Schools: Many different teams from around the country! (44 entries in Men’s Event, 30 entries in Women’s Event & 42 entries in Alumni Event)

This past weekend, 18 current Men’s and Women’s Varsity Team members and 9 Ithaca Alumni traveled to Boston, Massachusetts to compete in one of the most prestigious regattas in the world, The Head of the Charles. Established in 1964, The Head of the Charles is the largest 2 day regatta in the world, attracting over 9,000 athletes from 36 different states and 32 different countries who compete in an estimated 1,900 boats in 61 different events. It is also estimated that more than 300,000 spectators come to the Charles River over the course of the two day regatta to watch! Needless to say, the atmosphere at this regatta is truly un-matched, and it is a unique experience for every athlete involved.

The racing for Ithaca began on Saturday, October 18th as the Women’s Alumni 8+ took to the water to compete against 41 other entries from around the United States. They had a strong race, finishing 17th out of 42 entries with a time of 18:17.40 beating entries from Williams, MIT, Wellesley, Marist, Boston College and more! Their top half finish means that they automatically qualify for next year, so look out for our Women Alumni at the Charles in 2015!

On Sunday, October 19th, the Ithaca Men’s and Women’s Varsity Boats headed out on the water to compete in the Men’s and Women’s Collegiate 8 events! The Men competed in a tough field, racing against crews such as Williams, Michigan, Hobart, Grand Valley State, Virginia and more! Starting behind Marist and ahead of Bates, they had two great crews to compete against the entire way down the course. They were able to row a strong race, and they finished 28th out of 44 entires with a time of 16:22.89. The Women had the same level of competition! They raced against crews from Bates, Trinity, Williams, William Smith and more! They looked strong throughout the entire race and were able to come in 10th place out of 30 entries with a time of 18:11.19! This was their 2nd top 10 finish at The Head of the Charles in the past 2 years! They beat crews from William Smith, Bates, Wesleyan and other Northeast Rivals! This was a strong showing for them!

Overall, Ithaca had two out of the three competing boats qualify for the regatta next year! Even though the Ithaca Men did not automatically qualify for next year, the still rowed a quality race against stiff competition! Ithaca Men’s and Women’s Crew travels to Saratoga, NY next weekend to compete at the Head of the Fish! With teams such as Marist, WPI, Boston College, RIT, and Williams competing, it will be a great day of competitive racing! If you are around the area, please come and support Ithaca College Crew!

Ithaca Sculling Competes at Seven Sisters Sculling Head Regatta!

Regatta Name: Seven Sisters Sculling Head Regatta
Location: Hadley, Massachusetts (UMass Amherst Boathouse)
Participating Schools: University of Massachusetts Amherst, Tufts, Smith & Ithaca
Condition: Foggy in the morning, however cleared up throughout the day!

This past weekend, the Women’s Varsity Sculling Team travelled to the University of Massachusetts Boathouse in Hadley, Massachusetts to compete in the Seven Sisters Sculling Head Regatta! The race was an all day event, consisting of two 5k’s, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Unlike the Head of the Genesee, where the times from the morning and afternoon are combined for one total result, both 5k’s were considered separate.

When the athletes arrived at the race course, there was a dense fog hovering over the venue and race course. As a result of this, the racing was delayed by 15 minutes, to make sure the athletes had safe enough conditions to compete. The fog did eventually clear and the conditions turned out to be fantastic and favorable for racing!

In the morning, Ithaca had four entries in three events. In the quad event, Xan O’Neill, Kellie Palladino, Rachel Brogle and Tara Malone, coxed by Lynn Smith, raced to a second place finish, completing the course in a time of 19:50.7! They were only bested by the entry from Tufts. There were two, 2x entries as well. The entry of Jennie Peterson and Delaney Pfohl completed the course in a time of 19:15.8 which was the fastest time of the morning in that category! The second entry of Rachel Dowd and Katie Ely finished 6th out of 17 entries, finishing the course in a time of 20:05.7! In the 1x event, Emily Morley rowed to a 7th place finish out of 19 entries, completing the course in a time of 21:10!

After taking a break in-between races, athletes went back out in the afternoon to compete in yet another 5k! The afternoon quad of Emily Morley, Jennie Peterson, Katie Ely and Delaney Pfohl, also coxed by Lynn Smith, completed the course in a time of 18:31! In the afternoon 2x category, Kellie Palladino and Rachel Brogle placed 5th out of 13 entries, completing the course in 20:20.5! Competing as lightweights in a category with both heavyweight and lightweight entries, they should be extremely proud of that result! The second entry of Xan O’Neill and Tara Malone placed 11th out of 13 entries, completing the course in 21:08.4. In the 1x event, Rachel Dowd placed 5th out of 14 entries and completed the course in a time of 23:07.5!

Overall, it was a very strong showing for Ithaca Sculling! Taking into account both 5k races and warm-ups, all athletes rowed a total of 22k! Ithaca showed great diversity and competitiveness by rowing in different line-ups, boats and events in the morning and afternoon! It was a long day, however Ithaca showed up to compete and they represented their Bomber Pride well!
