Coach: Dan Salerno (first year)
What to watch: The Braves have 12 varsity rowers and enough new rowers to run two novice boats. Some of the leaders are expected to be Steven Bailey, Trevor Calimer, Rick Blair, Andrew Hart, Jeremy McAllister and Sean Blair (Rick Blair’s brother). Calimer, Sean Blair, Hart and Bailey were in a junior four last year that was a Press All-Star boat.
Salerno rowed for Mainland Regional before graduating in 2009. He rowed for the University of Delaware’s club program, which competes in Division I. He later was an assistant coach for Delaware.
“I expect us to be competitive towards the end of the season,” Salerno said. “The varsity four, lightweight four, varsity four B and novices look strong.”
