V4A and V8 Boats Clinch First Place in Navy Day Regatta

MMA entered five boats in the King’s Head Regatta, hosted by the Upper Merion Boat Club. For several years, MMA's crews have dedicated their races at the King’s Head Regatta to MMA alumna Jackie Fioravanti '12 (RIP). Congratulations to all rowers on an impressive showing and especially to our V8A (pictured below) for kicking off our fall season in style, edging out two Mount St. Joseph boats to earn gold in their category by a margin of 8.85 seconds.
