*.  To qualify as a lightweight at the NY State Scholastic Championships in Saratoga, the rowers had to weigh in and be certified prior to rowing.  Under 150 lbs. for men, and 130 lbs. for women.  

Rye Crew’s big take away  at the recent New York State Championship in Saratoga Springs, NY was the first place finish by the men’s lightweight 4+ against 14 teams from across the state.

The Gold victory was impressive as Rye High School Crew won by open water, 18.5 seconds ahead of Pelham.

The men’s lightweight 8+ boat qualified for SRRA with a solid performance in time trials on Saturday.  Their championship race on Sunday was cancelled due to windy conditions so their time from Saturday brought them through.

The women’s lightweight varsity 4+ qualified for SRAA in time trials on Saturday in a group with 19 boats.

Longstanding men’s coach Stan Nelson and women’s coach Catharine Labine  were proud of all the rowers and the team’s overall performance during this year’s States, and the hard work the rowers have put in all season, often in the wee hours of the morning.

The team must now come up with the funds to get the rowers to Nashport, Ohio.  Nancy Neuman from Coldwell Banker, Rye, has started the ball rolling by donating to the Crew team.  If you would like to contribute to help the team get to Nashport, Ohio, please contact susanna-publicity@ryecrew.org.
