ALEXANDRIA, VA. - For the second year in a row, inclement weather shortened the schedule of races at the Walter Mess Regatta at the Occoquan Reservoir on April 7. Rowers were challenged throughout the day on the 1500-meter course by snow, a brisk headwind and wind chills hovering just above freezing.

While finals in some race categories were cancelled as weather conditions further deteriorated late in the afternoon, the T. C. Williams crew team still came away with solid races and impressive victories in this early season outing. The 2018 Walter Mess included almost 1600 athletes from 30 Virginia, Washington DC, and Pennsylvania schools who raced in 227 boats, 12 of which came from T. C. Williams High School.  

In their debut race of the season, the Titan Women’s Novice 8 boat placed second in their heat with a time of 7:17.3. Also in their first race were T. C.’s two Men’s Novice 8 boats, one of which won its heat with a time of 5:57.3. Unlike other schools, whose novice boats usually include freshmen and older rowers, T. C. Novice boats typically are composed entirely of eighth graders.
