Fight Club Frenzy 2015

Marquette Crew kicked off the new year with a new winter schedule, participating in Milwaukee’s first Fight Club Frenzy indoor regatta on January 31st. The Milwaukee School of Engineering and the Milwaukee Rowing Club Juniors also participated, presenting an exciting competition for our squads.

The women’s teams especially rose the challenge, capturing medals in each event. Novice Lightweights Molly Merrion and Bridget Moffett took 1st and 2nd respectively, and Novice Open Kaitlin Howard and Aisling Hegarty won 1st and 3rd.  Varsity Lightweight Emily Riesigraf took 2nd in her race while Varsity Openweight Sarah Reis placed 2nd with an overall time of 7:21.3. The men's team had a few notable finishes as well, including Patrick Knapp taking 4th in the Novice Men's Lightweight event, Jeff Kopaniacz placing 5th for the Novice Men Open, and a 6th place finish for Ricky Kauffmann in the Men's Open event. Alumni Mike Thometz and Coaches Taylor Valentine and Kyle Stanley also dusted off their unis and competed in the Men's Open event.

The Frenzy was an excellent start to our winter erg season and we look forward to making it happen again next year. All squads are motivated and hungry for more victory on the water come springtime.
