May 21, 2010
BERKELEY - Two California men's crew student-athletes - Nareg Guregian and Zachary Vlahos - were among the 29 collegiate rowers selected by USRowing to its 2010 Men's Under 23 National Team Selection Camp this summer as recently announced by the rowing organization. Guregian and Vlahos are both members of the Golden Bears' varsity 8+, with Vlahos as the coxswain.
The camp will select the men's eight, lightweight four, four and quadruple sculls crews that will compete at the 2010 World Rowing Under 23 Championships July 22-25 in Brest, Belarus. In addition, coaches will select the men's four with coxswain, pair, double sculls and single sculls that will compete at the 2010 USRowing Under 23 World Championships Trials scheduled for June 22-25 on Mercer Lake in West Windsor, N.J. The winners of these trials also will earn the right to compete in Brest.
For the eight and four, the camp will be held June 8 in Oakland, while the camp for the quad and lightweight four will be held in Oklahoma City, Okla. Athletes will then travel to Chula Vista, Calif. on June 18 to prepare for the World Rowing Under 23 Championships.
Competing on last year's junior national team, Guregian took silver in the men's four along with teammate James Long-Lerno at the 2009 World Rowing Under 23 Championships in Racice, Czech Republic last July.
Cal next competes in the IRA Regatta from June 3-5 in Camden, N.J.
