MIAMI BEACH, Fla.—The Barry rowing team narrowly dropped both the varsity four and the varsity eight races to the Nova Southeastern Sharks on Saturday in the Barry/Nova Dual at Indian Creek.
The varsity four took the water first and finished the race a mere 0:03.4 seconds behind the Nova crew with a time of 8:22.3. For the Bucs, it was cox- Savanna Luberto, stroke Haley Stark, 3- Jen Feriozzi, 2- Jamie Gordon and bow-Rebekah Kilroy manning the boat.
In the varsity eight race, the Barry crew of cox- Grace Horwitz, stroke- Kelly Harrison, 7- Vanessa Viadero, 6- Nicole Marek, 5- Jaimee Lampard, 4- Renee Forcier, 3- Helene Pierre, 2- Arianna Masley and bow- Courtney Greene tallied a time of 7:11.1. Nova’s eight boat beat the Buccaneers, as they posted a finishing time of 7:06.3.
“I think our crews did the best they could today,” Barry head coach Dave Sanderson said. “But clearly, our ‘best’ needs improving; we have work to do. I know our athletes will learn from today’s race and are eager to challenge themselves on a daily basis as we move forward with the season.”
The Bucs take a two week break then travel to Oak Ridge, Tenn. to compete in the SIRA Championships on April 16-17 for their next race.
