men's crew Coaches
- Head Men's Crew Coach(315) 229-5941
George Repicky was promoted to the role of Head Men's Crew coach at St. Lawrence in the summer of 2005. Repicky, who has worked as a coach with the program since 2003, has helped establish the Saints as one of the premier crew programs in the East.
Repicky has produced two Liberty League Novice 8+ Crew of the Year recipients ('09, '12) over the past four years. Undefeated through much of the spring season, the 2011-12 novice won the Liberty League Championship and was runner-up in the NYS Championships. In 2009-10, Repicky guided the Varsity 8+ to its fastest year in program history as the crew qualified for the grand finals in the NYS Championships.
The year before, the novice 8+ made history as it was the first boat in Saints history to advance to the Grand Final at the ECAC Championships. Throughout the course of the spring season, that crew was undefeated, claiming both the Liberty League and New York State titles after the unblemished spring campaign. The success of Repicky's novices in various regattas throughout the year is the introduction to a very storied future for men's crew.
Repicky, a 2000 graduate of Ithaca College and a member of the men’s rowing team, previously coached at Sienna College and Lehigh University as well as a number of clubs and high school teams. He and his wife Emma Brackett reside in Canton, NY.
