ALEXANDRIA, VA. - The T. C. Williams High School crew team finished the regular season on April 28 with most of their boats competing at the Charlie Butt Regatta on the Potomac River at Georgetown. Two Women’s Doubles raced at the Al Urquia Regatta on the Occoquan Reservoir. Eight T. C. boats posted wins in the regular season finales. Titan rowers, coxswains and coaches continued to tweak their game as they prepare for two weekends of Virginia Scholastic Rowing Association championship competitions.

For the third week in a row, the T. C. Men’s First 4+ rowed to victory, clinching the win with a time of 5:05.3, ahead of cross-town rival West Potomac (5:22.7) and Stone Bridge (5:30.8). For Titans Stefanos Psaltis-Ivanis, Connor McGivern, Jake Souza and Ian Willmore, and coxswain Michaela Gleeson, the next challenge comes at Occoquan on May 12 for the state title.  

Following a win in their early morning heat, the T. C. Women’s First 8 also secured a win in their final with a time of 5:15.4, besting Yorktown (5:23.5) and McLean (5:25.0). “Our race was strong from the beginning—we flew right off the start in front of the other boats,” said First 8 senior rower Grace Hogan. “You could feel everyone’s excitement as we were rowing.”
