A change in venue and race course didn’t impact the New York State entries Friday on the Cooper River at the Stotesbury Cup.
28 New York entries advanced to semifinals or finals Saturday at #StotesJersey as the regatta was moved earlier this week.
Here is the listing of the competing teams, events and red highlights those crews that have advanced.

Good luck to all the New York State teams.
The rowers are now eight miles away from the original site AND in a different state, but the 92nd Stotesbury Cup is still set to begin at 8 a.m. on Friday with time trials.
New York State Scholastic Rowing Association will be represented by 23 different clubs with 107 entries.
We’ll keep you updated via twitter with their results with a full day recap at the end of the day Friday as the weekend gives way to rain on Saturday in the Northeast.
Stotesbury Ttime Trial start order
STAN HUDY – SHUDY@DIGITALFIRSTMEDIA.COM Saratoga Rowing Association senior rowers Kathryn Grabowski (left) and Catharine Griskowitz (right) have rowed together for the past nine years and will both attend Boston University this fall as part of the women’s lightweight program.
They have been best friends since grade school, they learned to row together on Fish Creek and the success will continue for Saratoga Rowing Association seniors Kathryn Grabowski and Catharine Griskowitz who are both joining the Boston University lightweight program in the fall.
SRA’s Kathryn Grabowki and Catharine Griskowitz to attend BU
The duo have competed in almost every configuration of boats for SRA through the years and wanted to end their careers together in the double, winning a state title last weekend.
The two rowers, not college roommates (too much of a good thing), will look to continue their winning ways at nationals.
It’s been a Twitter topic for the past 24 hours and now here is the official press release from Schuylkill Navy regarding the move.
