Five students from Chaminade-Julienne High School (Dayton, OH) will compete today and Sunday in the US Rowing Youth National Championships in Rancho Cordova, CA.

The four members of the girls’ varsity lightweight team (juniors Margaret Geraghty, Abby O’Loughlin, and Erin Carmody, and senior Ashley Erich) qualified for nationals after placing third at the Midwest Championships this spring. It’s the second year all four girls have qualified.

Joining them in California is senior Tony Bogard who qualified with a first place finish in the boys’ varsity double. It’s also the second appearance at nations for the four-year, varsity letter-winner.

More than 500 crews will compete for national titles in 18 events. The semifinals and finals will be streamed live on YouTube Saturday, June 14 (watch here), and Sunday, June 15 (watch here).

It is the first year the national championships have been hosted on the west coast.

CJ men’s and women’s rowers and coxswains compete under the Dayton Boat Club. The program has produced at least one college signee from Chaminade Julienne every year since 2006, including most recently 2014 graduate Grace Horner, who is headed to Canisius College
