Men's Grad Crew Places 9th at Head of the Schuykill

The men's grad crew, rowing as Memmian Rowing Club, placed a solid ninth out of 44 entries in the Open Four category of the 1994 Head of Schuylkill Regatta, held on the Schuylkill river in Philadelphia on Oct. 29.

Conditions were poor with gusting headwinds and whitecaps. Penn Athletic Club set the pace, winning in 15 minutes, 47 seconds. The MIT grad crew completed the 2.75 mile course in 16:46, coming in behind seventh-place Boston University A and eighth-place University of Pennsylvania A.

At the Schuylkill, the grad crew returned with the performance it showed in its Open Four victory at the New Hampshire Championships two weeks earlier, after a lackluster Head of the Charles race.

The crew, from stroke to bow, consisted of Jon Grant G, Geoff Parker G, Martin Muendel G, and Lorin Theiss G, with Conan Hom '95 as the coxswain.
