Congratulations student-athletes and coaches!

Big thanks to travel coordinator Barbara Maietta, chefs and chaperones Barbara and Patty Fargnoli.

While it wasn't possible for all members of the team to make the trip, every rower and cox, Varsity and Novice, Boys and Girls, along with the entire coaching staff, help to make us faster. All can take pride in contributing to the team’s success. The same holds true for alumni. For the Boys, this time around was just a brief hiatus from Nationals; they’ll be back.

Be sure to catch exciting race videos posted below.
