Magnificat High School is proud to announce Joe Mariuzza as its first ever Head Rowing Coach.
Coach Mariuzza began his rowing career as a high school student at Central Catholic HS in Pittsburgh (PA). After four years at Central Catholic, he started coaching for them in his sophomore year of college at Duquesne University. Under his tenure, the freshman men’s eight earned first at Midwest twice and a second place at Scholastic Nationals. Coach Mariuzza then moved on to coach for Oakland Catholic HS in Pittsburgh, the sister school to Central Catholic. During his eight years as Head Coach at Oakland Catholic, the team tripled in size, earned multiple medals at Midwest, and took the school to its first few showings at Scholastic Nationals.
Magnificat High School is very fortunate to have been able to secure a coach with the credentials that Coach Mariuzza possesses to begin our Blue Streak Rowing program.
