Brunswick School’s crew team competed at the Thomas Eakins Head of the Schuylkill Regatta, one of the large classic regattas on the fall head race circuit and the squad certainly made its mark.
Six Bruins scullers raced in the Jim Barker Mens High School Singles, the most singles entries Brunswick has ever raced at the Head of the Schuylkill.
Sam Subramaniam, a junior, earned a silver medal in a time of 14:21.2 for the Bruins in the scullers race. Will Baxter, a senior and senior Robert Jacobson were 8th and 11th, respectively out of a group of 24 scullers in the varsity category for Brunswick.
Junior Henry Sorbaro earned a bronze medal, while sophomores Kiran Marsh and Lucas Tan were 11th and 15th, respectively, out of 23 in the Junior Varsity category.
In the Mens High School Four with/Coxswain category, Brunswick’s crew of senior Max Konzerowsky, senior Peter Kapp, sophomore Henry Andren, junior Jimmy Cabot and junior Ruffin Bryant finished in fourth place, just 2.3 seconds out of the medals in an extremely competitive field of 53 crews. The race saw a two of the top three eights in the country split into fours.
To close out the day, Brunswick also raced in the Men’s High School Eights. The crew of Konzerowsky, Kapp, Andren, Cabot, Bryant, senior Ben Packer, senior Theo Evans, Jamie Gibbons (senior) and Campbell Officer (junior) placed a strong eighth out of 47 boats.
