Message from Coach Emily: Navy Day Regatta

This past weekend we raced on Saturday afternoon at the Schuylkill for the Navy Day regatta. Considerably smaller than Head of the Schuylkill, Navy Day gives us a nice stepping stone to once again check out how we stack up against competition. 
Our boys varsity 4+ finished 13th out of 33, managing to have faster times than some boats who beat them at Head of the Christina. This trajectory is exactly what we want to see and gives us a great baseline moving into a bit more training time before traveling to Philly once again for Head of the Schuylkill. 

Rower Spotlight!

Slade Crane

Slade is a Varsity senior rower for GV Crew. Outside of rowing, he enjoys skiing and watching football. Right now, he is undecided on his plans after high school. When it comes to rowing, Slade most enjoys giving it his all and staying in time, especially to songs like "Sumo." He like that rowing is unique and has inspired him to work hard. Slade goes by his motto: "Always power through, you'll always feel better in the end"

  • Practices begin on September 6th, 2019.
  • PRACTICES are MONDAY-WEDNESDAY-FRIDAY 3:45-6:15pm and SATURDAY at WYRA from 10am to 1pm.
  • PLEASE NOTEThis is a competitive rowing team, we need your full commitment to all practices and regattas. We need the whole team at every practice to ensure we can get on the water ever day the weather conditions allow. We lowered the number of weekday practices when we moved to WYRA, due to the commute and respecting the rowers need to have time for school work. So more than ever, we need full commitment, one rower missing practice means an entire boat has to stay on-land.
