This Week at Mercer: 10/12 – 10/18

Hello!  There will likely be multiple blog posts from coaches and coordinators this week, so this entry is just to kick off the week with a couple of items:

Navy Day Recap

Mercer boats saw tremendous success on the Schuylkill during last Saturday’s Navy Day Regatta.  Here are the final results:

  • Men’s JV 8+:  5th and 14th
  • Women’s JV 8+:  1st and 6th
  • Men’s 4+:  7th
  • Women’s 4+:  1st
  • Men’s 8+:  1st
  • Women’s 8+:  1st

The Mercer Masters 8+ also took first in their event earlier in the day.  CONGRATULATIONS to all!

Thank you also to all who contributed to the prerace potluck pasta dinner — though the weather did not cooperate, the boats were loaded, and the bellies were filled!

College Recruitment Primer

Athletes and parents are invited to attend a college recruiting information session at the boathouse on Tuesday, October 13 at 6:30 pm.  This event, which will help to provide some guidance for the college recruitment process, is geared toward high school sophomores and juniors and their parents.
