Rugby: 2013 was a year that Gonzaga Rugby will celebrate for quite some time. Our numbers hit a new high with 210 boys participating in our program. Our varsity teams successfully defended PRU (14 in a row), Jesuit Rugby Classic (4th in a row) and MAVRC (5th) championships. A trip to South Bend IN would have the eagles advancing to the final game and coming up a little short 21-16 in an attempt to win a National Championship. The JV also won a PRU title (3rd in a row) and the freshman collected PRU (3rd in a row), Jesuit Rugby Classic (2nd in a row) and Frederick Fast Trac championships.
An important part of our team this year was the outstanding leadership from our captains Matt Flynn, Dom Plantamura and Ben Cima. Ben and Jimmy Ronan would represent the USA as members of the High School All American team during spring break in England while the rest of the team traveled to Argentina and Uruguay. All league selections would include Jack Carroll, Matt Flynn, Tommy Rippert, Will Clougherty, Dom Plantamura, Charlie DePont, Jimmy Ronan, Ben Cima, Frank Ruzicka, Matt Ruiters and Michael Barry.
Crew: In Head Coach Marc Mandel's 5th year, Gonzaga Crew proved once again it was one of the fastest high-school rowing programs in the country. Building off of last year's success, the Eagles did not miss a beat, finishing the regular season undefeated in the First and Second Varsity Eights. After an open-water sweep of the eight-oared events at W.M.I.R.A.'s, the program turned its attention to its most important regatta of the season -- the Stotesbury Cup in Philadelphia. It was a historic day for the team: the Varsity Eight retained the Stotesbury Cup, the Second Varsity Eight won its event to bring home the "Hammer Trophy", the Junior Varsity Eight earned a bronze, and the 4th Varsity Eight finished 5th in the Varsity Lightweight Eight event. At the Scholastic Rowing Association Championships the following weekend, the Varsity Eight saw its two-year-domestic win streak come to a dramatic end in the finals in difficult conditions. Regardless, the 2012-2013 crew season will still go down as one of the best in program history, and the graduating crew athletes of 2013 will be remembered for their all around excellence.
