2012 - 2013 Season

Nationals

When the three Yorktown women’s crews headed for the Scholastic Rowing Association of America’s national championship regatta May 23, the weather was balmy. But as with so many of the team’s regattas this spring, the weather refused to cooperate—by the time the bus arrived at the Cooper River race course in Camden, NJ, the clouds had moved in and rain was coming down in sheets, turning the rigging area into a mud-filled trailer park. Still, after a short delay and a quick stop at the team hotel, the crews rigged their boats and completed a couple of practice rows down the course in preparation for Friday’s heats. Ominously, while the rain stopped, the winds began to pick up—a front was coming. Read more

CONGRATULATIONS ALL!! This outstanding performance bodes well for years to come! Read more

St. Andrews Regatta

Yorktown Crew traveled to Middletown, Del., Saturday April 13 to race in the Noxontown #3 Regatta, one of a series of regattas hosted by St. Andrew's School on its sheltered home course at Noxontown Pond.  On an almost picture perfect afternoon, Yorktown squared off against some of the fastest crews in the country. On the men’s side there was St. Albans, which came in second at last year’s national championships, La Salle, which placed 6th, and Chaminade, which came in 10th, along with Holy Spirit and the St. Andrews squad. The competition was just as stiff on the women’s side, with last year’s national champions from National Cathedral School topping the list, along with Mount St. Joseph, which came in third last year, Holy Spirit, which placed 9th, T.C. Williams, which came in 12th, and host St. Andrews. Read more

The Arlington Cup

The second annual Arlington Cup was held Saturday, April 6 in Georgetown and after a week of windy, cool conditions, the winds calmed, the temperatures warmed and the water was just about perfect for a regatta. There was superb racing by all the crews involved and it was a great day for the novice and freshman crews on both the women’s and men’s teams to get their first racing experiences of the season—practice pieces are one thing, but that first race is something else entirely.  Read more
