Hobart Novice 8 wins another Liberty League honor

For the second consecutive week and fifth time this season, the Hobart College rowing team’s novice eight has been named the Liberty League Boat of the Week. First-years Reynaldo Kelly (Salisbury School/Bronx, N.Y.), Max Swagler (Fairport/Fairport, N.Y.), David Roberts (Walt Whitman/Cabin John, Md.), Pierce Hewes (Tower Hill School/Kennett Square, Pa.), Gerry Samson (Concord/Concord, N.H.), Jack Trimble (Westfield/Westfield, N.J.), Evan White (Tabor Academy/Plymouth, Mass.), James Hollyday (Fairfield Prep/Norwalk, Conn.), and Bob Taylor (Bishop Eustace Prep/Merchantville, N.J.) produced the best results of the day in head-to-head racing against Colgate on April 19. After falling to the Raiders’ second varsity eight (6:28.82-6:34.45), the Statesmen took a 15 minute break and then headed back to the starting line for another race. In their second run down the 2,000-meter course, the novice eight defeated Colgate’s novice eight and Hobart’s second novice eight. In the second race, the Statesmen posted a winning time of 6 minutes, 31.67 seconds, more than six seconds ahead of the runner-up. Hobart returns to the water, April 26, when the Statesmen compete in the Liberty League Championship in Saratoga Springs. Hobart is the two-time defending league champion.
