Gennaro and Mastracci Medal at World Cup II

Syracuse alums Mike Gennaro '11 and Natalie Mastracci '13 were on the podium at the the World Rowing Cup II in Lake Aiguebelette, France. 

After an injury in the US men's eight, Gennaro stepped in and helped row the American eight to gold, taking the lead right from the start in the final and leading over the entire 2,000-meter course, beating second-place Great Britain by a second and a half and third-place Belarus by 2.5 ticks.

The American M4- then put in a gutsy effort, with Gennaro doubling up and another member of the crew racing ill, the USA four raced in the second position up until the final 500 meters when they were passed by Australia. Great Britain won the race, with the Aussies second and the USA third.

Mastracci rowed the seven seat of the Canadian women's eight, which won the silver in a time of 6:05.82. The US won in a time of 6:04.77, and Great Britain finished third in a time of 6:11.39.

Mastracci also raced in the Canadian women’s pair with Susanne Grainger. After reaching the podium in World Cup I, they finished out of the medals.
