FALL RACING

Textile River Regatta - Sun., Oct. 6, 2013 in Lowell, Mass.
Competing over an approximate 3.5-mile course, Wesleyan had tremendous success in both the Club 8 and Open 8 races.  The Cardinals' three entries in the Club 8 took first, fourth and 12th of 15 with a winning time of 19:18.91, the fastest time of the day by any crew.  That was turned in by the likes of rowers Sam Factor  '14, Ben Record '15, Noah Solomon '14, Chris Nanda '16, Mike Queenan '17, Nick Petrillo '14, Peter Martin '14, Ethan Currie '15 and cox Max Dietz  '16.  Wesleyan edged second-place WPI by two seconds for the crown.  The Open 8 entry, virtually the same as the first varsity that won the Club 8, only with cox Andie Kleeman '16 and rower Stephen MacNeille '15 instead of Factor, secured second place among 12 entries.  Wesleyan also had a boat entered in the Open 4, taking 5th of 16 entries.

Continuing to improve in the Collegiate 8 event, Wesleyan's entry took a outstanding fifth place among 40 entries after taking eighth in the event a year ago.  The 2011 entry placed 15th.  Coming through with the tremendous row was the group of cox Andie Kleeman '16 with rowers Mike Queenan '17, Ben Record '15, Noah Solomon '14, Chris Nanda '16, Peter Martin '14, Nick Petrillo '14, Sam Factor '14 and Ethan Currie '15.  The Collegiate 8 race was held on Sunday.  The previous day, Wesleyan was represented by cox Max Dietz ’16, with rowers Keegan Dufty ’14, Peter Cornillie ’15, Colin Mattox ’17 and Stephen MacNeille '15 in the Collegiate 4, producing a 17th-place finish among 38 entries.

Head of the Fish Regatta - Sat., Oct. 26, 2013 in Saratoga, N.Y.
Coming through with its second win of the fall in a collegiate 8 event, Wesleyan captured the crown among 25 entries, covering the two-mile course in 11:45.66.  On board for the victory was the group of cox Andie Kleeman '16 with rowers Mike Queenan '17, Ben Record '15, Noah Solomon '14, Chris Nanda '16, Peter Martin '14, Nick Petrillo '14, Sam Factor '14 and Ethan Currie '15.  The Cardinals also had a pair of boats in the junior varsity collegiate 8, taking second and seventh among 12 entries.  A fourth Wesleyan boat competed in the collegiate novice 8, coming up with a 15th-place showing among 36 entrants.
