We are TJHSST's Crew Team, a community composed of over 100 hard-working student athletes.

Since 1989, we have competed at State, National, and International competitions, winning numerous national medals and international acclaim. Our rowers form the most tight-knit and academically successful athletic community at TJ, with the highest graduating GPA of any sport in 2018. From the class of 2018 alone, our alumni went to row and study at schools including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Princeton University, and Duke University, just to name a few.
