LEONIA, NJ - Rowers sponsored by the Newburgh Rowing Club traveled to Leonia, NJ and two crews took home first place medals in the Overpeck Regional Youth Regatta, with high schools and clubs from New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, competing, said Coach Ed Kennedy.
The Men’s Junior 4+ took first place with a commanding time of 5:59, said their coach. The crew consisted of Mike Sarvis, Michael DeCapua, Aydan McCoy, Nick Danza and coxswain Davonte Davis.
The Boys Lightweight 4+ also took first place with a time of 6:25. The lightweight crew consisted of John Kennedy, Bo Kuhn, Jake Dennis, Renato Meza and coxswain Joseph Roy.
"I’m very proud of all the rowers," said Coach Kennedy, "considering how much additional water time all the other teams already had, I would say the Newburgh rowers exceeded my expectations."
