Freshman Coxswain Featured In Philly Newspaper
When the Washington crew team headed to New Jersey for the IRA Championships earlier this month, it also served as a return home for a pair of coxswains.
Both Seamus Labrum (Cape May) and Samuel Ojserkis (Atlantic City) are from the Jersey Shore and have raced on the Cooper River course while competing in high school. Labrum is soon headed with the rest of the National Championship-winning Grunties over to England, where the team will race in the Royal Henley Regatta, one of the coolest spectacles the sport of rowing offers.
Leading up to the trip, Labrum was also featured in the Philadelphia Daily News by writer Michael Radano, who covered the Huskies in New Jersey as a freelancer for the Seattle Times. It's an enjoyable read on how he ended up in Seattle and the tremendous work he's accomplished already as a coxswain.
