Local rowers compete in regatta on Charles River

Four members of the Lake Stevens Rowing Club took part in the prestigious Head of the Charles Regatta on Oct. 20-21 in Boston.

Greg Williams and Wayne Matheny, competing in the senior masters division, placed 26th out of 32 competitors in men’s doubles (50-plus). They incurred a 10-second penalty and finished with an adjusted time of 21 minutes, 23.735 seconds.

“(Williams and Matheny) would have finished much further up the ranks if not for the penalty,” the rowing club’s communications liaison, Terri Potebnya, said.

Wendy Clark, who has been rowing for just 11/2 years, finished 20th out of 21 entries in the women’s masters single event with a time of 26:04.077.

Fleming Brainerd, who also serves as LSRC’s master’s and junior-varsity boys coach, placed 46th out of 56 competitors in the senior master singles men (40 plus) with a time of 21:47.481.

The Head of the Charles Regatta, billed as the world’s largest two-day rowing event, was first held Oct. 16, 1965. This year, more than 7,500 athletes from around the world competed in the regatta, which drew approximately 300,000 spectators, organizers said.


Snohomish freshmen go undefeated: The Snohomish High School freshman volleyball team completed an undefeated regular season Thursday. The Panthers dropped just one game in their 14-match schedule.

The Panthers, who lost three players to the junior-varsity squad at the beginning of the season, competed against freshman squads from other Western Conference schools.

“Our hitters and middles all averaged about four or five kills each per game,” Snohomish head coach David Ballinger said. “The defensive specialists kept our setters busy. Our serving was at or above 90 percent every game.”

The Snohomish freshmen also won a 16-team tournament held at Mariner and placed second in a 10-team tournament hosted by Lake Stevens.

Setter Shelby Short was the team captain. Joining her on the roster were setter Kellie Delisle, outside hitters Megan Rice, Olivia VanDlac and Jennifer Hoang, defensive specialists Whitney Johnson, Breanna Swift and Alexa Dennis, and middle hitters Kendra Vuori, Becca Smith and Katie Kunda.
