Men's Crew Comes Away With Four First Place Finishes at the Head of the Fish

Harris Hardiman-Mostow was part of the first-place Novice 8

MEDFORD, Mass. - The Tufts University men's crew team competed Saturday at the Head of the Fish in Saratoga Springs, New York. 

On a day that started out warm and sunny with good rowing conditions that slowly turned to strong winds and large waves, the Jumbos were able to come out on top in four different events. 

One of the biggest results of the day came in the Men's Collegiate Novice 8+ when Tufts was able to beat out Marist by seven-tenths of a second to claim first place. The crew consisted of freshman coxswain Nina Benites, freshmen Harris Hardiman-Mostow, Rick Boer, Colin Lata, Charles Cornillie, John DiGiacomo, Jack Telman, and Michael Wrede, and sophomore Michael Thramann

The Jumbos earned a third straight title in the Collegiate Men's Single Scull thanks to senior Andrew MacMillen. A crew of sophomore Paul Gelhaus, junior Ryan Bell, and seniors Tyler Hagedorn and Ashton Knight won the Men's Collegiate "A" Quadruple Scull. Sophomores Peter Malinovsky and Ross Hamilton won a silver medal in the Men's Collegiate Double Scull. 

The team also finished in first place in the Mixed Collegiate "A" Quadruple Scull with a crew of Gelhaus, MacMillien, and seniors Emma Conroy and Elizabeth Lichter. 

Tufts will wrap up their season next weekend when they travel to Hanover, New Hampshire for the Green Monster Invite for a novice-only race.
