Crew alumni return to Carroll

The first-ever Carroll Crew Alumni "Practice” was held Dec 22, with over 40 alumni returning to see the newly-renovated and painted erg room, catch up with old teammates, and see the latest crop of Carroll rowers. A few brave souls even jumped in on the practice with the current rowers!

Alumni in attendance spanned all seven years of the Crew team’s existence at Carroll, including former captain of the St. Joseph’s University Women’s Rowing Team and current Graduate Assistant Coach at Eastern Michigan, Delaney McGuire (‘12), current senior and co-captain of the St. Joseph’s University Men’s Rowing Team, Claudio Recchilungo (‘14), and eight of the nine members of the 2013 Carroll Girls Varsity 8 that finished fifth in the country. 

The artwork in the erg room was completed by both the current boys’ and girls’ teams and designed by Isa Pimentel ('19) and Lindsay Brogan ('19).

The Carroll Crew Team competes in the spring, and rows out of Whitemarsh Boat Club in Conshohocken. For more information, please contact Mr. Gennaro at:  Wgennaro@jcarroll.org
