A PAIR OF ROWERS from Episcopal Academy reminded everyone what sportsmanship is all about while competing in a high school regatta on the Schuylkill on Sunday.
James Konopka and Nick Mead were cruising along in the Under-17 doubles race when they passed a capsized St. Joseph's Prep boat.
"They had flipped," Konopka, a 16-year-old sophomore, said yesterday. "Nick said we should probably go back [to help them] and I agreed, so we turned around."
"They were yelling 'help' and one of the kids didn't appear as if he could swim too well," said Mead, a 16-year-old junior. "The water was cold and I'm sure their limbs were going numb."
