The Saint Joseph's men's rowing team captured the city championship by winning the Varsity 8 at the Bergen Cup on the Schuylkill River, for the first time since 2008. The Hawks also scored a win in the Second Varsity 8.

It was SJU's first Bergen Cup title since 2008.

The Hawks edged Drexel in the Varsity 8, with a lineup of:  c- Caroline Bird; 8- Matt Ladd; 7- Keenan Perry; 6- Garren Best; 5- Slam Dunkley; 4- Dave Wong; 3- Riley McGwin; 2- Thomson Rymer; 1- Claudio Recchilungo

In the Second Varsity 8, SJU outdistanced Temple with a crew of:  c- Jenn Reynolds; 8- Devin Swech; 7- Joe Sullivan; 6- Matt Conlin; 5- Andrew O’Connor; 4- Jack Darling; 3- Kevin Lichtenfels; 2- Eric Jones; 1- James Hammerstedt

The Freshman 4 was comprised of:  c- Caroline Seelig; 4- Joel Ridd; 3- Eddie Blackburn; 2- Tommy McGuane; 1- Jansen Kachel.

SJU's Freshman 8 was third on the day, with a lineup of: c- Courtney McDonnell; 8- Patrick Ganter; 7- Julian Palermo; 6- Justin Hawkins; 5- Bobby Lojewski; 4- Mike Thompson; 3- Mark White; 2- John Thompson; 1- Sam Ferrizzi.

"It's exciting to be part of the great Philadelphia collegiate racing that is represented by the Bergen and Kelly Cups. It has been too long since we have had enough team speed to be a larger part of the conversation for this tradition and it is fun to be part of close, hard, and fast races," said coach Mike Irwin. "We have to keep growing if we want to get to the medals dock at the Dad Vail. We have more work to do and only three weeks left to prepare."

The Hawks return to action next weekend in a dual meet at Rutgers on Saturday, April 29.
