With the conclusion of the Head of the Fish regatta, the 2022 crew season has finished. Held in Saratoga Springs, NY, the regatta features a 2-mile head race course. Head racing means that participants do not race simultaneously, but rather are timed and ranked based on that metric instead. Northwood participated in 2 events, the Boys and Girls U17 Single (sculling). Participants included Gus Garvey ‘25, Hung Nguyen ‘25, and Sophia Sherman ‘25. Despite competing against some of the top scullers in the country, and facing obstacles such as water weed, everyone finished the race.

Coach Howard Runyon reflected on the team and the season. “It’s a young team with good potential. It’s a young team of capable people whom I hope to watch grow and develop into skillful racers.” He also praised the team’s camaraderie.  “Another thing I’d like to say is that we have good luck right now to have a group of people who are all good at getting along with others so that it’s a cohesive group. It’s easy to make collective effort happen.”

The crew team will return to activity in the spring of 2023.
