Shaker Heights crews medaled in five events on Sunday at the Head of the Ohio Regatta in Pittsburgh. Eleven Red Raider crews raced the 2.6-mile course on the Allegheny River against 16 high schools and five clubs from Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, and West Virginia.
Shaker‘s Novice Women, competing in only their second regatta, finished first among the competing high schools in both the Novice 8 and the Novice 4 events. Shaker’s Varsity Women finished second among high school 8’s and third among high school 4’s. Shaker’s Novice Woman single sculler, Sophie Calabrese, won her event.
Red Raider Varsity Men’s 8 and Varsity 4 showed improved speed over their first fall regatta and finished 7th and 6th respectively among the high school crews. The men’s 8 and 4 posted the two fastest times of the day for the Red Raiders. Shaker’s Novice Men were competing in their very first race and finished second among their high school competition and fourth overall in the Novice 8 event.
