At the World Championships: the USA’s lightweight men’s quadruple sculls that trained at Riverside

Just a few weeks ago at the World Rowing Championships in Amsterdam, six Riverside Boat Club athletes competed on the US National Rowing Team. The lightweight men’s and women’s quads both finished first in the B-final, coming in 7th place overall. The women’s eight won the gold medal—their ninth consecutive world title!

The lightweight men’s quadruple sculls trained at Riverside all summer under the guidance of coach Margot Shumway. The crew consisted of: Andrew Neils, Peter Schmidt, Jake Georgeson and Kyle Lafferty. Riverside’s Hillary Saeger competed in the lightweight women’s quadruple sculls, and Lauren Schmetterling in the women’s eight. (Both Hillary and Lauren trained with their respective crews in Philadelphia and Princeton.)

Riverside is honored to play a part in the lives of each of these athletes, and so proud of their performances at the World Championships.

    I just want to let you know how much I enjoy your reports about the exciting developments at Magazine Beach. I’m retired now and spend a fair amount of time away from Cambridge, but I’ve lived in Cambridgeport for 40 years and have always loved Magazine Beach and wished more could be done to refurbish and better utilize the area.
    Looks like we’re well on our way to accomplishing that!
