BJP CREW WINS GOLD AT SAN DIEGO CREW CLASSIC
Regarded as the first major regatta of the year, the San Diego Crew Classic brings together thousands of athletes from more than 100 universities, clubs and high school programs from across the United States to participate in this premier rowing event in San Diego. Established in 1973, for many rowers, the Crew Classic is the highlight of their competitive rowing careers and a competition for future Olympians.
Our Lightweight 8+ crew repeated its gold medal performance, winning by open water with a 10 second margin over the silver medalist. This victory once again ranks our team as the #1 lightweight program in the country and positions us as the favorite at the Youth National Championships to take place in June. Belen also holds the distinction of being the only scholastic program to win at this level at this prestigious regatta.
Congratulations to Jonathan Menendez, Carlos Marin, Jorge Garcia-Sarraff, Daniel Giacosa, Rodrigo Marin, Alejandro Pacios, Ivan Cabrera, Hunter Prindle and coxswain Santiago Ugas as well as Head Coach Yunian Cabrera and Asst. Coach Rolando Gamon on a such a dominant performance!
