Westfield High School Crew hosted a sculling scrimmage at the Rutgers Boathouse on Sunday afternoon. Eight participants from the Swan Creek youth program raced doubles and quads 1000 meters on the Raritan River. Races were held in heats of three boats. No times were taken.
The tidal flow and a brisk wind made the conditions somewhat challenging, however our youth conquered the course and won almost all of their races.
Crews were as follows:
Boys Freshman/Novice 2X 2:00 – First Place!
Girls Freshman/Novice 4x 2:15 – First Place!
Boys JV/SR 2x 2:30 (raced varsity boys for a close 2nd)
Girls Freshman/Novice 2x 3:00
Janine LeChein (first time ever in bow…well done!)
Girls Varsity 4x 3:30 – First Place!
Many thanks to Westfield Head Coach Robert Greenwood for his generous invitation to use Westfield boats and equipment. No Rigging or De-rigging! A fun day had by all!
