Photos and videos from Texas winter training trip available

Thank you coaches and athletes and chaperones for a great trip this year. (And parents, for raising wonderful kids.) By now I’m sure you’ve heard some happy stories. Photos and videos of many of these special moments have been posted to our Flickr account.

A special thank you goes out to Katy for her outstanding organizational skills. She makes these trips safe, educational, and most important, fun. Plus somehow she arranged perfect weather. To all the coaches, your leadership sets a great example for the athletes. We appreciate all you do for the team.

It looks like we brought the warmer weather back with us from Texas. Here’s to getting on the Charles soon!

Andy McLaughlin Appointed Girls Varsity Coach

McLaughlinI am very excited to let you know that Andy McLaughlin will take over as the girls varsity coach starting this fall. After an extensive external search we found the answer within our own coaching staff.

Andy began his rowing career at Hanover High School back in 2006. He rowed with the program for three years and made several appearances at NEIRA.

Andy attended Skidmore College where he continued to row. During his three years in the varsity boat he earned medals at the Head of the Fish, and competed at Dad Vails and ECACs. He was elected captain his senior year, and graduated with a BS in Exercise Science in 2012.

Andy has been a JV and novice coach with Brookline and Riverside for two years and we are very excited for him to take over the girls team this fall.
