Timon Rowers win championship

Congratulations to Bishop Timon's newly formed rowing team. The Tigers recently won the John Bennett Regetta at the West Side Rowing Club...

Heading into the four boat final, the Tigers were determined to pick up were their fellow alumni left off years ago and they did.

Right from the start Timon jumped into the lead and never looked back, they finished first in the finals, winning a Gold Medal. With a time of 5 minutes and 7 seconds, Timon shaved 14 seconds off their preliminary time beating St. Joes (A) by 13 seconds.

This boat consists of Sean Overdorf, Conor Gilson, Matt Eagen, Steve Moran and Coxswain Wil Welsby.

It goes without saying that the team was led by my cousin, Sean Overdorf. Not only did he single handily lead the team to victory, he also stopped halfway through the race to help a six year old Somali refugee, who appeared to be struggling in the water. Members of the West Side Rowing Club said they had never seen such heroics and composure from a high school student before. Overdorf has been entertaining offers from such prestigious rowing powerhouses as Harvard, Yale, and E.C.C. but has not yet verbally committed to any school.
