Helmsman Paul Giacalone knew his crew, ZFG, needed to make some serious adjustments after Saturday’s qualifying race.

ZFG finished second on Saturday and by a decent margin behind winner Kaos, but still reached Sunday’s final against defending champion The Merger. ZFG was considered the underdog in Sunday’s championship race, but Giacalone and company got back to work later on Saturday night to devise a new strategy. That strategy eventually worked perfectly as ZFG rowed an incredible race, beating defending champion The Merger by about a boat length and a half to secure the crown in the men’s Seine boat.

Since Kaos won three consecutive times from 2009 to 2011, no men’s team has repeated it as champion with the win, nine straight competitions.

“We knew what we did wrong on Saturday and we fixed it today,” said Giacalone. “The guys are really strong and we knew we had to make adjustments. I’m so proud of how they drove today.”

It was a nearly flawless performance for ZFG, whose name is open to interpretation, after a strong start from all three crews it was a nip-and-tuck race for most of the way to the pin, which is half a mile from Pavilion Beach away is .

As the crews neared the flag, Giacalone made a move, as did the Merger, led by helmsman Vito Giacalone Sr., making it a two-boat race home as Scuttler Mike Harmon and The Merger Scuttler Joe Balbo both had good flag turns.

ZFG, rowing in the Santa Maria, had a slight lead coming out of the turn but made another move and extended that lead to a boat length about halfway through. This lead was held for a while and then widened to half a boat as the crews hit the beach and ZFG fought off every push The Merger made in the second half of the race. Battling the wind and choppy waters of Gloucester Harbour, ZFG stayed on the ball and demonstrated the teamwork it takes to get the job done.

“It was a windy day,” Giacalone said. “We were getting strong, the guys were really strong out of the pin and on the way in we were rowing with the waves our way in. We have some young 22-year-old guys in our boat who are winning for the first time and a bunch of veterans, also former champions, so it’s great for them and great for the sport.

The performance was the polar opposite of Saturday’s race, as ZFG got off to a slow start out of the gates, trailing Kaos, Sunday’s third-place finisher, all the way. But as great crews do, Giacalone and company quickly turned the tide and took the championship.

Family strokes are repeated among the juniors

It was a wire-to-wire win in the Jr. Men’s Seine Boat division. The 2019 Family Strokes champion entered as a favorite and showed everyone why they are the defending champions despite a three-year hiatus. The now two-time Jr. Champions led from start to finish in Sunday’s finals, defeating Naughty Bouys and Renegades for the win. It also saw helmsman Jerry Ciaramitaro and scuttler Alex Rodolosi win both races back to back as they were rowers for ZFG.

Naughty Buoys made a big comeback to knock Renegades into second place.

Herren Sr. His boat champion ZFG: Paul Giacalone (helmsman), Mike Harmon (cutter), Peter Mondello, Vincenzo Terranova, Jared Morris, Gilbert Brown, Peter Taormina, Sam Taormina, Alex Rodolosi, Kellen O’Maley, Jerry Ciaramitaro, JJ Pallazola.

Herren Jr. His Boat Champions Family Strokes: Jerry Ciaramitaro (helmsman), Alex Rodolosi (Scuttler), Dan O’Leary, Robbie Schuster, Aidan Cornetta, Tim Marrone, Ryan Frates, Anthony Simonelli, Jack Costanzo, Avery Emerson, PJ Zappa, Keith Horne.

Cal Men’s Rowing adds Jason Elefant to the coaching staff.


Former Syracuse assistant will focus on Bears International Recruiting

BERKELEY – California men’s rowing coach Scott Fransen is pleased to announce the addition of Jason Elefant for the 2022-23 season. Elephant joins the 2022 National Champions after serving as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Syracuse.

“I’m delighted to have Jason join our team,” said Frandsen. “He has done a great job at Syracuse with recruitment and coaching and I think he will fit very well into our team culture. Jason will lead our international recruitment and focus on coaching the 3v/4v group within our roster.”

A native of Hamilton, NJ, is making his way to the West Coast after spending five years at Syracuse, the last four years as a recruitment coordinator for Orange. Elefant was responsible for recruiting all nine members of the 2022 Varsity Eight, which ranked No. 6 nationally and finished fifth at the 2022 IRA Championships earlier this month. It was the second year in a row that Orange competed in the IRA Grand Finals. The 2V8+ and 3V8+ took 8th placeth and 10th This is the third time in the past five years that Syracuse has ranked three crews in the top 10 nationally.

In 2021, in a shortened season marred by Covid restrictions, Syracuse recorded its best finishes in nearly 30 years, with the V8+ and 2V8+ eights finishing 4th and 5th in their respective Grand Finals.

During the 2019 season, Syracuse recorded its strongest doubles season in over a decade, with the V8+, 2V+, and 3V+ scoring 14-4 combined and taking the Goes, Stagg, and Packard trophies with wins over Wisconsin, Cornell, Navy, Columbia, and Dartmouth.

Elephant was the head coach for the second varsity eight during the racing season.


Elephant was appointed recruiting coordinator after completing a successful first year at Syracuse coaching third varsity eight to a double season undefeated record and a 10th national ranking at the IRA Championship Regatta. With the 3V’s 10th Place at the 2018 IRA, Syracuse placed three eighths in the national top-10 for the first time since the regatta was incorporated into its new format in 2013.

Before joining the Syracuse coaching staff, Elefant coached junior rowers in the UK for two years. From 2015 to 2017, Elefant was a Colet Fellow at St Paul’s School, London, one of the country’s pre-eminent schools and rowing programmes. As an assistant at St Paul’s, the program achieved numerous successes, highlighted by the programme’s first win in the Championship Eights at the UK National Schools’ Regatta in 2017.


Elephant graduated from Princeton in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in history. As a member of the men’s lightweight rowing team, Elefant won a three-time medal in the Eastern Sprints and earned a spot on the 2014 IRA All-Academic Team during his junior year. Elefant also competed in the 2012 United States U23 Lightweight Four Camp and was a substitute in the 2011 United States U19 national team.

“I’m thrilled to be joining the Bears and contributing to Cal’s legendary program,” Elefant said. “Scott, Brandon and Sam have done an amazing job of building a championship culture and clearly set the bar extremely high.

MASTER OF NONE

Keogh grew up in Murrumbeena, east Melbourne, where he and his buddies ruled the streets on their BMXs and rollerblades, frequented the local milk bar and later a McDonalds.

“It was like you had your little neighborhood and you knew all the shortcuts,” says Keogh. “It’s like a little rule when you’re a kid.”

Keogh’s world would quickly expand after transferring from his local primary school to St Kevin’s College, a prestigious all-boys private school and within the Victoria’s Associated Public Schools (APS) system in sports such as Aussie Rules, cricket and rowing starts. Keogh would become school captain, a position he had secretly coveted since seventh grade, perhaps indicating his great if largely hidden ambition.

“I’ve always been fascinated by the school captain and the position because he spoke at the assembly every Monday where he would tell a story and make it entertaining,” he recalls. “And when you’re a seventh grade kid and you look up at him, you’re like, ‘Wow, this guy is a grown man. In this small world, you are the star. So that’s what I’ve always striven for. Even though it was a secret, I thought it was pretty cool.”

Keogh’s rise to the position not only revealed an ambitious streak, but also his all-around ability. He was the jock who was also friends with the nerds and the musos. “I think you feel like it has to be a guy who can do a little bit of everything,” he says. “Maybe you don’t have to be the best at sports, you don’t have to be the smartest, but you kind of have to do well in all areas.”

It would be Footy where Keogh would show the earliest promise. He made the school’s top 18, essentially granting him the status of a demigod in the schoolyard, though Keogh was often in awe of his own teammates. “It’s almost like the guys who were the best on those teams were heroes,” he laughs. “Even after all this time you go ‘Gosh, Antony Keely, year 12, against Xavier, stands out as a full-back’. These people make a big impression on you.”

Looking back, Keogh feels he’s been “in his head” too many times to be a truly consistent schoolboy player. “Maybe I had a game or two that season where it clicked,” he says. “But it was almost like the stars had aligned and it just felt good that day. It was always a mystery to me why I played well.”

Typically, Keogh is likely downplaying his abilities. After leaving school he played for the St Kevin’s Old Boys team before being drafted to the Coburg Tigers in the VFL, who were the reserve side of Richmond FC at the time. “I remember getting a call one day when I was a freshman in college [coach] Andy Collins says: “How do you feel about playing in the AFL?” He planted the seed for it and I was like, ‘Wow’. I had no idea what I would do. I was just studying and wasn’t the most dedicated student. I was most disciplined in soccer. It gave me a bit of identity.”

Keogh took his first preseason seriously with the Tigers and got himself in top form to contribute to a reserve team that won the Premier League. The next year he started in the reserves before being promoted to the reserves for the second half of the season where he again played well. He describes himself as a grumpy defender who never wanted to draw too much attention to himself. “I remember wearing white boots to practice one day and the captain was like, ‘Doesn’t feel right. It’s just not for you. And I was like, ‘Yeah, I know’.” As a footy player, Keogh seems to have the temperament of a bassist.

By his third year, he became complacent, he says, and often found himself dreading the weekends, not because he didn’t enjoy them, but because of the cocktail of nerves and adrenaline that mounted as the week wore on, reaching a crescendo on Saturday morning. It’s similar, he says, with the nervousness he still feels before a performance. “If I had a gig tonight and someone walked right in and said it’s over, I’d be relieved,” he says. “But then it’s like, what do I do with everything
this energy?”

His soccer career would come to an end. He knew he didn’t quite have it, didn’t want it hard enough, couldn’t turn down his inner voices. At least not in football. But if he faded in one area, he was about to rise in another.

The Menlo Straights were the final venue for competition for Carrick at Shannon Rowing Club this Bank Holiday weekend. This three lane 700m course on the Corrib presented quite a challenge as clubs from across Ireland gathered to stage this famous regatta in 2022.

The Carrick women started the day with some Junior 14 double sculls action. The girls who started from Carrick at 5.30am did not manage to be on the pole boats by 8.15am, this is not an easy task and it is a credit to all involved including Club Captain John Lowe who faithfully transports and transports our boats provided.

Then our juniors went to the water in the J15 singles. Bri Murphy delivered the first win of the day with a fine series against Athlone Boat Club. Notable performances also came from Carrick’s Nandor Stefcsik and Tadgh Duignan.

The J15 Quads 4x+ competition came shortly after with a Carrick combo of Donal Keane, Fionnan Feeley, Cormac McKiernan and Alfie Walsh riding through the course to claim victory. A special mention goes to helmsman Hannah McKeon from Drumshanbo, who navigated the stiff breezes and choppy waters that made all the difference for Carrick.

Veteran sculler Leah McLoughlin maintained that winning habit for Carrick as she rode to victory by a wide margin over two local Galway Rowing Club crews in the J16 Sculler competition. This was one of the performances of the day as this skull sliced ​​through tough conditions and opponents very familiar with the course to victory by distance.

Another Carrick win followed against local crews, this time Colaiste Iognaid, as our men’s J14 crew set the pace and brought home more crossed rudder pennants.

Deteriorating conditions in the afternoon made for even more testing conditions, with Carrick Junior women working hard and performing well without silverware. These evolving teams, under the tutelage and watchful eye of coach Gabor Stefcsik, will have some very good experiences from that day onwards which they can use in their training for future competitions.

Winning ways returned for Carrick in the Mens J14 Double as an exciting new combination of Donal Keane and Mark Tansey proved the winners against clubmates Fionn O’Leary and Ruben McCrann and locals St Josephs Bish Rowing Club. These Roscommon men rowed with power, speed and style in a thrilling finale.

The final win of the day came for a seasonal duo of Bri Murphy and Cuileann O’Donaile in the Mens J15 Double. These men rowed with a tenacity and a confidence beyond their years to bring down the curtain on a six-win performance for the club.

As always, thank you to our Travel Coaches John, Gabor and Mick for traveling with our young protégés to provide guidance, support and race direction.

Next weekend will bring a local focus as the club compete in the Lough Rinn Regatta. This will be a real achievement for the whole club as the Mohill venue hosts the best Irish racing in a Grand League regatta.

Carrick RC will provide volunteers and officials at all levels from stewarding, umpires and judges to meal preparation, catering and coordination led by our President Gabriel Cox, Club Vice Captain Orna Gilhooley and Chief Judge Mark Butler.

Even veteran activists like Aoife Lowe are getting back into action after a short break after the Metro Regatta.

However, some club rowers will be taking a break next weekend as the Leaving Certificate and Junior Certificate affect attendance. We wish all our members taking exams the best of luck in the coming weeks.

We look forward to welcoming spectators and friends of the club to Lough Rinn next weekend to see some high quality racing and the venue for Leitrims International. See you there!
