Wayland-Weston Crew Champs at New Hampshire Event

Lots of medals and an overall points trophy are the bounty for the Wayland-Weston Rowing Association at its latest event.

Another weekend, another highly successful event for the Wayland-Weston Rowing Association.

The boys and girls teams walked away from the New Hampshire Championship Regatta on the Merrimack River with multiple medals and the overall team points trophy.

On Oct. 14, the team competed in four and eight-person boats over the 5,000 meter course. 

According to a press release, the boats raced in a typical autumn season head-race style, which means each boat started individually at approximately 16-second intervals.

"Despite the overcast skies and rainy weather, the team had a successful showing against strong competition in its third race of the fall season," the press release reads.

The team earned one gold, two silver and two bronze medals and earned points based on boats placing in the top three of each event. The number of boats in the event determined the point value.

The Wayland-Weston team name and year will be engraved on the New Hampshire Cup, which is kept with Amoskeag Rowing and displayed every year at the New Hampshire Championships Regatta.

Next weekend, Oct. 20-21, Wayland-Weston crew will race five boats (one Girls Eight, one Girls Four, one Boys Eight and two Boys Fours) in the Head of the Charles Regatta on the Charles River, the world's largest two-day rowing event.

The first weekend of November will take the entire team to a race against all the other Massachusetts public school teams for the state title.
