The Saint Joseph's men's rowing team finished its Fall season at the Head of the Occoquan, notching two first-place finishes, as well as a total of eight top-four finishes. It was the best overall performance by the Hawks at this race in coach Mike Irwin's five years, and was a meet that featured the largest field ever for the event, and near-perfect racing conditions.
The Varsity 8 entered three boats, posting first, fourth and 10-place finishes out of 31 entries. The boatings were:
A Boat: Caroline Bird, Matt Ladd, Keenan Perry, Garren Best, Slam Dunkley, Devin Swech, Riley McGwin, Jack Darling, Claudio Recchilungo
B Boat:  Jenn Reynolds, Tom Puhalski, Thomson Rymer, Dave Wong, Joe Sullivan, Andrew O’Connor, Justin Hawkins, James Hammerstedt, Kieran Smith
C Boat: Alec Galimi, Eric Jones, Kevin Lichtenfels, Matt Conlin, Brian Clancy, Josh Bostrom, Bailey Williamson, Mike Geoghegan, Nick O’Malley
SJU's Freshman/Novice 8 garnered first, third and eighth-place finishes out of 20 entries. The lineups were:
A:  Courtney McDonnell, Devin Swech, Slam Dunkley, Justin Hawkins, Kevin Lichtenfels, Michael Thompson, Mark White, John Thompson, Bobby Lojewski
B: John Baron, Julian Palermo, Shane Cummings, Sam Ferrizzi, Tommy McGuane, Kyle Johnson, John Lozinak, Sean Smith, Joel Ridd
C: Caroline Seelig, John Giunta, Eddie Blackburn, Michael Williams, Jansen Kachel, Eddie Simpson, Ben Beierle, Joe Vital, Justin Feraco
In the Varsity 4+, SJU took second, third and fourth place among 32 competitors, with lineups comprised of:
A - Fiona Conway, Joe Sullivan, Riley McGwin, Jack Darling, James Hammerstedt
B - Jenn Reynolds, Garren Best, Claudio Recchilungo, Eric Jones, Tom Puhalski
C - Caroline Bird, Keenan Perry, Matt Ladd, Dave Wong, Matt Conlin
"This was a very exciting way to finish our Fall calendar. There has been a high level of competition for seats in every boat this Fall," said Irwin. "Each week the program is getting faster and faster. It is great to bring home two top medals but also very encouraging to see our second and third entries in each event finish so strong. We wanted to build winter training momentum from our fall races and now we can use it to prepare for a successful Spring season."
