Moorestown Crew is a New Jersey nonprofit corporation that is parent-sponsored to provide training and competition in the sport of rowing for students of Moorestown High School in Moorestown, New Jersey. Unfortunately, we are only able to serve students from Moorestown High School with our fall and spring racing teams. Our summer programs are open to everyone.
We are dedicated to the philosophy that all Moorestown High School students who are interested in rowing with us have the opportunity to do so, regardless of ability to pay. Anyone who wishes to row but feels the cost of doing so would be a financial hardship should contact the club's treasurer.

Amazing job today at the Haddon Hammer. The coaching staff is completely amazed at how well everyone did today.
You may not know this, but most teams don't take a 10-week break from mid-November through early January. While the competition we faced today has been building towards this event for a few months, we've had 4 weeks. This highlights an accomplishment I'll talk about later.
But first, much was made of my decision to "row through" this event. Despite having a peak workout on Friday (varsity) and yesterday (novices,) we still put up some great times. I didn't calculate how many people PR'd in the erg room this week, but the percentage was very high. Given that, you may have expected VERY few people to be able to turn around and PR again today. Well, you would be mistaken. Nearly half (32 of the 67) of the kids racing today turned in their best time of the season. Of the 32, 16 were novice and 16 were varsity. AWESOME JOB!
Congratulations to novice boy Giovanni Augustino who took first place, novice girls Caroline Milstead and Olivia Coffey who went 2-3, lightweight boys Brent Jones and Joe DiMarino who also went 2-3, lightweight girl Ally Jordan who took second, and varsity boy John Kolb who took second as well.
In looking back over the past years results I am able only to see results as far back as 2012 (2011 and 2010 don't load properly on my iPad.) In the five years results I can see, this is the only time we WON the OVERALL TEAM AWARDS for BOTH the boys and the girls!
With that in mind, if anyone has any loose nails that they need tapped back in to place, bring them to practice tomorrow - We've got two new hammers.
This coming Sunday is the Haddon Hammer erg competition at Haddon Township High School. Directions can be found on the website, and more info will follow later this week. I just wanted to get out the published race times for everyone. These may slide a few minutes forward/backward, but they should be pretty close.
