The fall season is in full swing, with many TJ rowers participating in NVRC (Northern Virginia Rowing Club). Congratulations to Nick Skeen, James Bollinger, Willie Nuckols, Joe Angello, Joe Downs, Colleen Maher, and Emily Bartlett – all will race in the upcoming Head of the Charles.

Recruiting for the upcoming season is going very well – we have held several interest meetings and plan to hold a large meeting for both sides of the team before the start of winter training. We encourage the entire team to reach out to freshmen or other students interested in crew!

Some reminders: If you want to get a head start on service hours, stay after any home football game to clean up the bleachers. It usually takes 20-30 minutes, but you get an hour of service! The girls’ captains are holding practices after school on Fridays – meet us at 4:15 by the Cafeteria for running and core work!

Important Upcoming Dates:
  • Open house Saturday, 10/29 at Sandy Run, 1:00-3:00 pm 
  • Winter training starts Monday, 11/21
