This made us smile! 😀😀😀 Three GA crew alumni and a former GA crew assistant coach enjoyed an impromptu reunion on Saturday at Lake Carnegie in Princeton, New Jersey. From left to right: former GA crew assistant coach Taya Diangelo, who is currently an assistant coach at the University of Pennsylvania, Eric Blood '13 (Brown University), Alex Takei '13 (University of Pennsylvania), and Katie Aemisegger '16 (Syracuse University). GO PATRIOTS!!! #PatriotPride
GA rowing alums were well represented at this year’s Head Of The Charles Regatta®, the world’s largest two-day rowing event (first held on October 16, 1965). More than 776 clubs were represented, with 2,222 entries overall.
Eric Blood (GA ’13) rowing for Brown, finished first [woot!] in the Men’s Club Eights (read Brown’s coverage here). In the same race, competing against his former teammate, Zach Burkhart’s (GA’15) Boston University crew finished sixth.
Jess Zettlemoyer (GA’15) rowing for Boston College, finished 25th in the Women’s Club Eights.
Alex Takei (GA’13) rowing for UPenn, finished 8th in the Women’s Club 8+ — results here.
On Saturday, May 9, 2015, parents and members of the Germantown Academy crew program, along with Head of School Jim Connor 1760 and Director of Rowing Libby Peters, christened the “Peter McVeigh 1760” in honor of Director of CSO/Upper School History Teacher Peter McVeigh 1760. The Hudson quad boat was generously given to GA from an anonymous donor.
Thank you, Anonymous Donor!
(Just look at those Patriot Proud, boat-happy smiles!)
The Peter McVeigh 1760, now officially christened, will be racing at the 2015 Stotesbury Cup Regatta!
