The Greenwich Crew Junior Program has continued to excel season after season, gaining local and statewide acclaim for its athletes and programs. Founded eight years ago, our team is over 200 athletes strong. Coaches teach the importance of teamwork while the sport builds discipline and focus. Most of our dedicated young athletes finish their high school experience being sought out by top universities. Recent juniors have been recruited by Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth, University of Pennsylvania, Brown, and Columbia.
Greenwich Crew offers several options depending on whether you have recreational or competitive ambitions. Our Junior Program is open to boys and girls, 6th through 12th grade, and runs year-round with the competitive team training throughout the year.

Strong weekend at US Nationals.
The Girls 4x boat won the B final at the U.S. Rowing Nationals with a time of 7 minutes, 20 seconds. The team consisted of coach Marko Serfimovski, Megan Slabbert, Melissa Curtis, Alex Slabbertand Hannah Balikci.
Greenwich Crew's spring season culminated last weekend with an impressive showing at the 2012 U.S. Rowing Nationals in Oak Ridge, Tn.
Greenwich sent a women's quadruple scull and a men's eight sweep to the national event and each boat enjoyed a successful weekend.
The women's boat, which included Megan Slabbert, Melissa Curtis, Alex Slabbert and Hannah Balikci, won the B final with a sparkling time of 7 minutes, 20 seconds. Their winning time was the seventh best quad time in the country.
In their first race at nationals, the foursome finished second in their heat. They won their second race last Saturday, putting them into the semifinals. In the B race final, Greenwich crew made its move the last 250 meters, edging runner-up Y Quad Cities by two seconds.
Greenwich Crew's men's youth 8 boat placed third in the C final with a time of 6:18 -- a finish that was 15th best in the nation. The crew of Oliver Grueterich, William Cecio, Hutch Bryant, Vaughan Merrick, Trevor Frey, Herbie Marache, Lucas Colagrossi, John Oswald and coxswain Greg Lurito placed fifth in their initial race, clocking in at 6:12.
Balikci will row at the University of Pennsylvania and Birkhold will compete at Bucknell next season. However, Greenwich Crew will return most of its key rowers next season, which bodes well for the future.
Congratulations to all who participated with the Virtual Challenge.
Greenwich Crew pulled a nice finish!
From January 1-January 31, 84 Greenwich Crew rowers, from our junior and masters teams, participated in Concept 2’s Virtual Challenge. In this annual Challenge, teams from around the world compete to see who can collectively accumulate the greatest number of meters on Concept 2’s Indoor Rowing Machine. Although the results are still rolling in, currently Greenwich Crew stands in 9th place out of 330 teams! Check out the results at
On 11/12/2011, at the Frostbite Regatta our Experienced Boys and Girls Teams had an impressive showing. In the High School Men's 8+, the Greenwich A, B, C, and D boats each took first place in their perspecitve flights, earning the squad four gold medals.
In the Women's Hgh School 4x, the Greenwich Crew girls posted the second fastest time in their event.
We had another great day of racing at the Bill Braxton Memorial Regatta on Sunday. The Men's first and second varsity 8+'s each qualified to race in the semi-finals after great showing in their flights at the begining of the day. The first varsity 8+ ultimately advanced to the final where they took 4th place overall.
The women's 4x again had a great race on Sunday, posting the third fastest time of the day.
In the Women's Junior Varsity 8+, our girls came in second in their heat and ended up with the second fastest time of the day.
The Men's Junior Varsity 8+ was a great race for Greenwich as well, with the A and B boats placing first and second in their flights.
The US Rowing Youth National Championships bring together the top high school rowers from across the United States. Greenwich Crew sent two boats to the Championships this past weekend in Oak Ridge, TN. The lightweight 8+ consisting of Cox: Giulia Volterra (Sophomore), Julie Sussman (Senior), Chelsea Oarr (Junior), Lara Tiramani (Senior, Captain), Sophie Grueterich (Senior), Whitney Lees (Sophomore), Nicole Birkhold (Junior), Gillian Burke (Sophmore) and Maddie Harrison (Junior) and the 1x rowed by Hannah Balikci (Junior). The YouthNationals race schedule is a grueling one, requiring boats to compete in multiple races to qualify for finals.
Balikci who just started racing in the 1x this season, used her heat and repechage races to continue to build confidence in her ability. In the C final, Balikci dug deep to find a second gear as she came through the 1000 meter mark. She was a boat length down to the other boat in her race, as she entered the last 800 meters of the race. Balikci's never say die attitude came threw as she made her move in front of a cheering crowd, going from a boat length down to a boat length up in 300 meters. She kept digging, finishing off the 2000 meter race in 9:03.68, two boat lengths up on her competition. Balikci finished 13th overall for the regatta.
The lightweight 8+ faced a challenging road, as they worked to improve on their performance from last years Youth Nationals. The 8+ raced to a 3rd place finish in their repechage, beating out Westerville (OH) by less then a second, to qualify for the semifinals. Racing later in the day, in what proved to be exhausting temperatures, the lightweight 8+ took 5th place in their semifinal, qualifying them for the B finals.
The lightweight 8+ had a good start in the B final but found themselves down passing the 800 meter mark. In what seemed to become a theme of the weekend, the girls found a second gear and truly showed their grit as they calmly picked off their competition, making a move from 5th place to fighting for 2nd in 400 meters. Hitting the 1600 meter mark, the 8+ used an early sprint called by coxswain Giulia Volterra to open up their lead on Miami, rowing to a convincing second place finish in their race. The lightweight 8+ finished 8th overall for the regatta
Seniors Sophie Grueterich (Villanova), Julie Sussman (Dartmouth) and Lara Tiramani (Wisconsin)provided the steady focused leadership needed for a crew to be successful. Their presences in the boat will be missed as they all hope to continue their rowing careers in college. Greenwich Crew will look to Balikci and the returning six girls from the lightweight 8+ for leadership this fall as they start their preparations for a return to Oak Ridge in 2012. Full results for the 2011 US Rowing Youth National Championships can be found HERE.

2011 NYPPEX GREENWICH INVITATIONAL
2011 CRASH-B Sprints - 2/20/11
Ten Greenwich Crew rowers traveled to Boston, MA this past weekend to compete at the 30th annual World Indoor Rowing Championships (aka the C.R.A.S.H.-B’s). The C.R.A.S.H.-B. Sprints originated in 1982 when a group of Boston rowers, many of whom were members of the U.S. National and Olympic Rowing teams, named themselves the “Charles River All-Star Has-Beens” and organized the first indoor meet of its kind. Today, the event is recognized as the world’s premier indoor rowing regatta. This grueling indoor race is 2000 meters long, a distance which any competitive rower will tell you is one of the most challenging in rowing…add a hockey arena, a couple thousand people, and some of the toughest competition in the world and you’ve got C.R.A.S.H-B’s.
Greenwich Crew members competed in several categories: Lightweight Junior Men, Openweight Junior Women, Heavyweight Junior Men, Veteran Men (age ranges 50-54 & 55-59) and Senior Master Women (40-49). Every athlete put in countless hours of hard work both on the rowing machine and in the weight room preparing for this demanding race. Their hard work and dedication should be applauded. The results for all Greenwich rowers can be found below. Congratulations to all who competed!

Greenwich Crew Top 5 in National Championships
14 high school students from Greenwich raced for the gold at the US Rowing Youth National Championships in Cincinnati, Ohio. Greenwich Crew, the rowing program at Cos Cob’s Greenwich Water Club, raced in the men’s pair (Palmer Foote and Alex Buck), a men’s double (Matt Lonski and Greg Riddell), and a women’s lightweight eight (Julie Sussman, Kirsten Lunder, Lara Tiramani, Chelsea Oarr, Maddie Harrison, Sophie Grueterich, Marina Kaneko, Nicole Birkhold, Glaura Paiva (coxswain), and Whitney Lees (alternate)). The race hosted over 1600 athletes from more than 160 clubs and schools from across the country.
This was Greenwich Crew’s first of hopefully many attempts at the National Championships, but it was more than beginner’s luck that earned the men’s pair a 5th place finish. In an amazing race from start to finish junior Palmer Foote and sophomore Alex Buck proved that hard work and talent do pay off. Foote and Buck only began training in the pair, one of rowing’s most challenging boats, in early May. Foote and Buck have already set their sights on returning next year, with Buck vowing to win more than one national medal by the time he graduates.
The women’s lightweight eight rowed to an exciting finish in their final race. Only a photo-finish could tell that the girls were the first of three boats crossing the line in less then 7/10ths of a second, earning them 14th out of the nation’s top lightweight women’s boats. Coach Marko Serafimovski was thrilled with the girls’ performance. “With only one senior in this lineup, we expect to be back next year with even more experience and speed” said Serafimovski. “The girls worked hard and it’s been a pleasure coaching all of them. Senior Kirsten Lunder, who has been a leader on the team for several years, will attend Skidmore College in the fall.
The double of team captains Lonski and Riddell chose Cincinnati over their senior prom. This final race was the last hurrah for both before graduation. Lonski who will be attending Columbia University in the fall and Riddell will attend USC have both made major contributions to the Greenwich Crew program, helping to establish the team as a national competitor. Unfortunately, Lonski and Riddell could not control Mother Nature. Stormy weather forced US Rowing to change the progression of the regatta eliminating the repechages, which would have given the boat a second chance at making top 10 after drawing the strongest heat. The way the events played out, the double rowed to a top 15 finish to end their high school rowing career. Both Lonski and Riddell felt it was a great experience to row with the fastest boats from all over the country, one we have been working for all year.
“Rowing is increasing in popularity all over the country. The level of competition is always being raised and Greenwich Crew is ready to be a part of it,” says Branan. “One of the great parts of the sport is that you can start at almost any age. We have a fantastic middle school program that feeds our growing high school team and we have adults in their 30s, 40s, and 50s who are just beginning. It’s a life-long sport that benefits recreational participants and competitive rowers alike.”
Greenwich Crew Qualifies Two Crews for Youth Nationals

In what would have been the culmination of a season where Greenwich Crew has established itself as a top contender in the junior rowing community, the Men’s 2-(pair) and Women’s Lightweight 8+ extended their seasons a little bit longer. Competing at the Northeast District Championships in Lowell, MA, both boats came up big in their races, qualifying them for USRowing Youth National Championships. The Men’s pair of stroke Palmer Foote and bow Alex Buck won their heat, posting the fastest time in their boat category and placing them in the center lane for the six-boat final. Facing fast boats from Community Rowing, Inc., Central Crew Club, Worchester HS, Cape Cod Rowing, and Fairfield Prep, Foote and Buck pulled away from the field finishing 7 seconds ahead of the next fastest boat. “Palmer and Alex really found themselves in the pair and it’s great to see their hard work paid off” said Chris Ives, Head Men’s Coach. “The boys took one of the hardest boats in rowing and made it look easy in less than three weeks. We are very proud of them,” said Ashlee Branan, Director of Rowing, who along with Ives has been working with Foote and Buck.
The Women’s Lightweight 8+ of Julie Sussman, Kirsten Lunder, Lara Tiramani, Chelsea Oarr, Ashley Rhodes, Marina Kaneko, Sophie Grueterich ,Nicole Birkhold, and coxswain Harriet Brock qualified for Nationals taking third in their final. Boston Latin School and Greenwich Crew were battling it out going down the race course with Greenwich maintaining at least a 1 seat lead the whole race. As the crews entered the last 150 meters Greenwich really showed their determination, taking 2 more seats before crossing the finish line two seconds ahead of Boston Latin. CRI and Concord HS bested Greenwich in the race, but the third place finish secured their invitation to Nationals.
The 1st Freshmen Boys’ boat raced in the 3rd Varsity Boy’s race. “The freshmen boys knew they would be facing crews who were older than them, but they were ready for the challenge,” said Coach Marko Serafimovski. “New Canaan beat our crew by less then a second but the guys showed they’re ready to take on tougher competition.” The 1st Freshmen Boys’ boat of Oliver Grueterich, Herbie Marache, Trevor Frey, Rich Caputo, George Miller, Lucas Colagrossi, Chris Warner, August Allocco, and coxswain Mallory Madfes took 2nd place in the final. A number of other Greenwich boats advanced to semifinals and finals in their respective races including :
Women’s Lightweight 4+ --Lunder, Tiramani, Sussman, Kaneko and cox Glaura Paiva FINAL
Men’s Youth 2x –
Matt Lonski, Greg Riddell FINAL

Greenwich Crew had a great season with strong performances at Mercer Sprints, Saratoga Invitational, and the Northeast District Championships. The program will be graduating 14 seniors: on the Girls’ side are Harriet Brock, Kirsten Lunder, Despina Petsagourakis, and Ashley Rhodes; on the Boys’ side are Jason Blom, Dan Lewis, Matt Lonski, Jamie Lyons, Liz Miller (coxswain), Greg Riddell, Tucker Risman, Amanda Rosa Di Sant (coxswain), Christian Rosier and Nick Stewart. “Each senior made their own special contribution to our program. Their commitment and dedication has helped to grow Greenwich Crew into the program it is today. These seniors made it possible for us to qualify boats at the National level. We wish them the best of luck!” said Branan.
The two boats qualifying for USRowing Youth National Championships will race in Cincinnati, OH on June 11th- 13th.
St. Luke’s Invitational - New Canaan, CT
The Greenwich Crew freshmen teams competed in the St. Luke’s Invitational this past Sunday. Racing against varsity crews from New Canaan, St. Luke’s, Saugatauck, Kent and Fairfield Prep meant a tough day of competition. “Greenwich looked strong in a number of events and brought home some medals” according to Marko Serafimovski, Head Freshmen Boy’s Coach. The Women’s JV 4+ of Kate Cooper, Allie Shulman, Victoria Meskers, Esther Lee and cox Mary Rowley won their event with a time of 5:59. Greenwich entered three doubles in Men’s Varsity 2x event. Despite having limited practice time in doubles this year the Greenwich boats raced hard. Oliver Grueterich and Trevor Frey took 2nd place behind the Varsity 2x from New Canaan with the other two Greenwich doubles close behind.
The Novice 4+ events were where Greenwich really capitalized on the strength of their freshmen team. On the Boy’s side Greenwich took 1st and 2nd in the event. The Greenwich “A” boat of Herbie Marache, James Manganiello, Will Cecio, Chris Warner and cox Mallory Madfes navigated the course in a time of 5:42. The “B” boat of Wolf Hofer, Vaughen Merrick, John Oswald, Max Meyer and cox Sam Savitz took 2nd with a time of 5:53. “The Novice 4+ boats looked strong today, I was happy to see them perform well and reap the benefits of their hard work” said Serafimovski. On the Girl’s side, the Novice 4+ of Giulia Volterra, Whitney Lees, Linnea Ekholm, Nicole Annunziata and Kate Aiello took 1st. “All of the girl’s raced multiple times today, putting in great performances across the board” said Kate Coulter, Head Freshmen Girl’s Coach.
