Great update from our Boy's Varsity Crew Team this week:

Even with recent setbacks, the grind doesn't stop! As they move into what would have been Spring Regatta Season, our student-athletes have adapted to a "virtual regatta" to keep the spirit of physical fitness and competition alive.

Over the course of the past school year, rowers from T.C. Williams and Washington & Liberty have been putting in a tremendous amount of work towards getting faster on the water. Rowers at all levels at both schools have consistently demonstrated that they're hard-working and persistent

The Boys Teams from T.C. Williams and W&L have always had a complex, intense rivalry. The boys have often worked together during the Fall season as a part of the Old Dominion Boat Club (ODBC) Select Team, which is coached by Derek Parsons (W&L's Head Coach). However, during the Spring, it’s a completely different atmosphere. Representing their own high schools against each other, the boys are extremely competitive and give all they can at the annual scrimmage between the two teams.

As you all know, due to recent events, the water season has been suspended until further notice. So, demonstrating their classic grit, the boys have continued workouts -- on ergs and reporting virtually -- from their own homes, and conduct a scrimmage! The boys will do a series of challenging 3-minute, 2-minute, and 1-minute pieces. The boys will go as hard as possible and will be recorded for time. Once the results are in, times between T.C. and W&L will be compared. Please be on the lookout for the scores to see who will come out on top this year!



Thank you to our Boy's Coach, Pete Stramese, and our Coxswains (as scorekeepers and writers), Shelby Bavin and Felicity Brock.



Row TC, Go TC!
Remember the Titans!

Last weekend the Men’s team was invited to compete as part of the W-L Triathlon. The event was held at Washington & Liberty High School on Saturday as an individual competition among Virginia teams. The participators came from many schools including TC, W-L, Gonzaga, McLean, Colgan, TJ, and more. Starting off with a 4k erg piece, the boys were in separate categories for lightweight and heavyweight. From TC Williams, Noah Schuerhoff and Will Bavin represented the lightweights, while Ethan Anthony, CJ Chidlow, Bennett Logan, and Jonathan Hernandez represented the heavyweights. They then ran a 2 mile run including the stadium stairs and finished it off with 2 minutes of bench rows with each bench row taking 3 seconds off of the rowers total time. Going to the results, there were 26 people in the Experienced Lightweight Men category where Noah earned 15th place, 2nd if you take out the bench rows, and Will earned 23rd! There were 30 participants in the Experienced Heavyweight Men category where TC had another strong representation. CJ earned 13th, followed by Bennett in 14th, Jonathan in 15th, and Ethan in 17th. It was a really fun event and we hope to attend again next year!
