Warwick Crew rows into first place at NYS Championships

May 17, 2023

Warwick Crew had a successful regatta at the NY State Scholastic Rowing Championships, held May 13 and 14 in Saratoga Springs.

The Warwick Crew Girls Varsity Straight Four, crewed by Warwick High School seniors Sasha Blanchard, Isabelle Flores, Olivia Nosarzewski, and Lizbeth Varela-Cordero finished first to become NYS Champions. This is the last time these girls will attend the NY State Scholastic Championships and they are all very proud that their years of dedication enabled them to bring home the gold.

Warwick’s future looks bright as the Girls Freshmen U16 8+ crew rowed an extremely close race to earn a silver medal, impressive for their first NYS Championship regatta and only their second race as a team! Congratulations to Ariana Ovanesian (coxswain), Annika Castillo, Abigail Kane, Mya Chocallo, Ava Roome, Leila Morris, Kate Castellano, Riley Seijas, Natalie Houston.

Rounding out the results, the Boys Varsity Straight Four crewed by sophomore Beren Munkatchy and juniors Nicholas Rivera, Garrett Houston, and Killian Bauman rowed to a 3rd place finish.

Warwick crew next competes in the Orange/Ulster/Westchester/Rockland cup and the Hudson Valley Racing League Novice Championships on May 20 and 21.

Congratulations and good luck with the rest of the season, to the team and its coaches, Jim Cody, Cate Cody and Anthony Paterno.
