First Varsity Eight – Shorewoman of the Week
The coxswain and eight rowers from the women’s rowing team’s first varsity eight share this week’s Shorewoman of the Week honor after defeating Wellesley to open the spring racing season Saturday.
The fifth-ranked Shorewomen hosted third-ranked Wellesley Saturday morning in a race featuring each team’s top two eights. In a course shortened to 1,500 meters due to a building crosswind and a snow squall, the Shorewomen’s first varsity eight finished in 6:37.04, while Wellesley’s top boat was second in 6:41.14.
Senior Christie Phebus (Trappe, Md./Easton) was the coxswain of the Shorewomen’s first varsity eight. Senior Kelly Bird (Galloway, N.J./Absegami) sat stroke, sophomore Madeleine Morrissette (Arlington, Mass./Arlington) was in the seven seat, senior Ashley Myles (Chester Springs, Pa./Owen J. Roberts) was in the six seat, senior Mickey Fili (Sparks, Md./Hereford) sat in the five seat, senior Taira Sullivan (Stevensville, Md./Kent Island) was in the four seat, sophomore Jackie Creitz (Schnecksville, Pa./Parkland) sat in the three seat, senior Krystal Brostek (Galloway, N.J./Absegami) was in the two seat, and sophomore Hannah Sive (Glenville, N.Y./Niskayuna) was the bow.
Stephen Luck – Shoreman of the Week
Senior lacrosse player Stephen Luck (Catonsville, Md./Boys’ Latin) is this week’s Shoreman of the Week. Luck scored four goals, including the overtime game-winner, in the Shoremen’s 8-7 win at Haverford Wednesday.
Luck scored a pair of goals in the game’s opening quarter. He then scored the game-tying goal with 1:40 remaining in regulation and the game-winner just 42 seconds into the extra session. He added another goal in a 10-7 win at Franklin & Marshall Saturday, the Shoremen’s first in Lancaster in eight years, as Washington improved to 3-0 in Centennial Conference play.
