Wolverines Dominate the Miami International Regatta

CJ Cristobal ‘16 | Communications Specialist
This past weekend, most of the Belen Crew team competed at the Miami International Regatta in Key Biscayne. There were 219 entries from 17 different clubs. Our team obtained amazing results: eight gold, three silver, and two bronze medals. The 2nd Varsity stepped up and won Gold against other 1st Varsities, our 3rd Varsity won Gold against other 2nd Varsities, and our Freshmen stepped up and won Gold against other 3rd Varsities.
While the majority of our team was racing locally, our Varsity 8 traveled to the West Coast and made us proud with a 6th-place finish in the San Diego Crew Classic against some of the top competitors in the country.

Belen Jesuit Preparatory School was founded in 1854 in Havana, Cuba by Queen Isabel II of Spain.  The task of educating students was assigned to the priests and brothers of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), whose teaching tradition is synonymous with academic excellence and spiritual discipline.  In 1961, the new political regime of Cuba confiscated the School property and expelled the Jesuit faculty.  The School was re-established in Miami the same year, and over the next decade, continued to grow.  Today, Belen Jesuit sits on a 30-acre site in western Dade County, only minutes away from downtown Miami.
