2011 - 2012 Season

  • Awards will be made at the end of the season.

In sum, five YHS crews travelled to Nationals, three made the semifinals, one made the petites, and one made the grand final. A small improvement over 2010 and 2011, but progress nonetheless, and thus another "never been done before" achievement for the program. Read more.


History is made in small increments and over a brilliant sunny weekend in Philadelphia May 18-19, the Yorktown crew program took another step forward at the 86th annual Stotesbury Cup Regatta. Fielding one of its largest and deepest teams ever, the Yorktown men's and women's crews put six crews into the semifinal round of the largest high school regatta in the world. This was certainly the team's best performance in more than 10 years and likely the best ever, topping 2010's record of five crews advancing. Unfortunately, none of the six could crack into the grand final round, but some courageous performances from the outside lanes bode well for next week at Nationals on the Cooper River race course in Camden, NJ.

St. Andrews Regatta

A tired, battered, but game group of Yorktown boys and their parents made the trek up to beautiful St. Andrews School in Middletown, DE, for the second Noxontown Pond Regatta of the 2012 season the morning after returning from spring training at Camp Bob Cooper in Summerton, SC. Yorktown raced in the third, second and first varsity eight races. Read more.
