Crew Season Open House November 19!

Please join us on Thursday, November 19 from 7:00 to 7:45a m at the NCS Athletic Center Erg Room to learn about this exciting sport. There will be rowers at the Athletic Center entrance to help you find your way to the Erg Room downstairs. Meet STA Head Coach Ted Haley,  NCS Head Coach Greg King, and NCS Freshman Coach Rachel Gabbay to hear about plans for winter conditioning and the upcoming 2016 crew season.  Coffee, juice, breakfast snacks will be offered.  Please contact Noni Lindahl, President of CCCRC (Combined Cathedral Crews Rowing Club) with questions about the program and Debbie Dunn with questions about the November 19th event. And remember, please park in the Cathedral garage.

Thank you! See you on the 19th!

Oh, Canada!

Last week, Coach Rachel Gabbay took several rising NCS sophomores – Sophie Dunn, Beata Corcoran, Amelia Parizek and Caroline Garcia – to the 133rd annual Royal Canadian Henley Regatta, with the Thompson Boat Center (TBC Racing) U17 squad.  The girls gained valuable racing experience against their international competition. Congratulations to Beata, Amelia and Caroline, whose boat took second place in the U17 Womens 8 Final. Watch this video to see their exciting finish!

Help needed in our rowing community!

Dear CCCRC community,

This link will take you to a gofundme site for a young man who was bitten by a shark in Florida. His father is the woman’s rowing coach at Winter Park High School. Years ago, he was the coach of our own Sal Assenza in Hyde Park, NY. Because of the nature of his injuries, the Vertullo family is in need of help to pay medical costs. Please consider giving something. The Winter Park team has been generous to us in the past, hosting us for our spring break trip in 2011 and holding a race for our boys last year. We have tremendous respect for Mike Vertullo and Dan Bertossa who coach the programs.

Thank you,

Ted Haley
