King's Head Regatta
Great weekend, inlcuding two gold medals, at the King's Head Regatta. Click hereto read more and view all of the results.
Many have asked about the tee shirts our rowers wore at the regatta. Here is a nice response to that question offered by Kelly Gregitis '12, sister to alumna rower Megan '14 and current rower Taylor '19.
"Every year at the King’s Head Regatta, the Merion Mercy Rowing Team continues the tradition of support and remembers our classmate Jacqueline Kay Fioravanti '12, who courageously battled cancer while a student at Merion. As a freshman attending St. Joseph’s University in February, 2013, Jackie lost her life too soon. Our "Team Jackie" is just a small reminder of the strong bond we have created with our Merion sisters. Jackie’s strength, courage and endless love will forever stick with us and remind us to always keep our heads up through the tough times."
