Erin Takes Chilly Schuylkill by Storm

By Mel Greenberg

PHILADELPHIA _ Although not exactly springtime outside, Jonathan and yours truly braved freezing weather to stand on the banks of the Schuylkill and watch our blogging teammate Erin Semagin Damio capture a rowing race on her visit here Saturday morning.

Since the Guru is not known for any knowledge in that particular sport, here is an account cut and pasted from the Northeastern University web site.

Erin was the coxswain of the varsity four event and her prize from us is her own headline above.

(Edit: For clarity's sake, the Orange Cup referred to below itself is awarded to the winner of the varsity eight race only. -- Jonathan T., who is known somewhat for knowledge of the sport as he rowed one season in high school... though not all that well.)

Women's Crew Wins Second Straight Orange Cup

Philadelphia, Pa. -- The women's crew varsity eight narrowly defeated Penn and Syracuse in the 28th annual Orange Cup on the Schuykill River in Philadelphia, Penn., with a time of 6:32.4.

The Huskies built an early half-length lead in the first 500 meters, which held through the first half. Penn closed the gap to about 2 seats in the final sprint before being defeated by only 0.8 seconds. Syracuse finished third with a time of 6:39.9.

NU also won the varsity four race, while Penn took the novice eight, novice four, and 2nd varsity races.

The victory for the Huskies is their second in a row, and third in the last six seasons. NU won last year's race by over 14 seconds.

Women's crew will now prepare for next Saturday, when they face Massachusetts, Columbia and Texas in the Charles River Challenge.

Varsity: NU 6:32.4, Penn 6:33.2, Syracuse 6:39.9
