Haverford, Baldwin, EA crews make waves at 1st Manny Flick

Philadelphia >> Haverford School, Baldwin School and Episcopal Academy kicked off their spring crew season with some solid performances at the 1st Manny Flick Regatta (the Horvat Series) hosted by The Philadelphia Scholastic Rowing Association March 18.
What follows are the results that were sent to us by the respective schools:
Baldwin School
In the girls junior varsity double sculls, the Polar Bears brought home a first-place finish (bow Grace Kirwan, stroke Helen Klaes), a second-place finish (bow Jada Wiliams, stroke Jane Bai), and a fourth-place finish (bow Ava Rosenbeger, stroke Sammy Baron), bracketing long-time rivals from the Agnes Irwin School with times ranging from 6:12 to 6:37.
In the girls’ varsity single, Baldwin senior Julia Love finished her first-ever singles race in fourth place, about seven seconds behind a closely-spaced pack of three leaders. Despite challenging crosswinds in the middle 500 meters of the race putting her behind the leaders, Love’s rally in the race’s final minutes pushed her back into contact with the leaders.
Episcopal Academy
Episcopal Academy’s Girls Varsity Quad, which included stroke Josephine Konopka; Alexandra Peyton; Rachel Barber and Brooke Kraftson, placed second in their heat with a time of 5:25.89, just a few seconds shy of the first place finisher.
