The Super Crew of '62                   

Navigation Note: Return to Class of 1962 Blog

In the beginning of the season the Crew looked very promising. At Arlington High, Poughkeepsie, NY, they won by three lengths. Unfortunately they lost in a close race by only six seats in the Lower Marion High race at Philadelphia. Their third race with Blessed Scarament High, New Rochelle, NY, was won by a wide margin of ten lengths. The group looked forward to events in the Poughkeepsie Regatta and the Schoolboy National Championship event at the New Jersey Regatta at Red Bank.  [Text from '62 Monad]
