Malvern's Varsity Quad Wins National Championship

This past weekend Malvern Rowing competed in the USRowing Youth National Championships on Harsha Lake at East Fork State Park in Batavia, Ohio. In the men’s quad Malvern once again captured the gold medal after losing last year to Maritime Rowing Club. Malvern's Quad consisting of Junior Mike Donohue and Seniors Mike Rawlings, Mike Bohs and Brandon Hanna clocked a time of 6:13.30 to finish 5.75 seconds ahead of Lake Stevens Rowing Club. Lake Stevens finished with a time of 6:19.05, followed by Maritime Rowing Club with 6:19.10. The Quad completed an undefeated season winning every Championship entered. No Quad has ever won all four major Championships (Cities, Stotesbury, Schoolboy Nationals and Youth Nationals) in the same year. The Quad will leave for England June 26th to compete in the Henley Royal Regatta which will take place the 2nd to the 6th of July.
