Beach Channel Crew Preps For Season
On Saturday, March 10, 2001, the new members of the Beach Channel High School Crew Team were able to use the indoor rowing ranks at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point. Thanks to arrangements made by Volunteer Coach and Alumnus, Robert Hughes, Varsity members were able to teach their new teammates how to row. The season is shaping up to be a successful and enjoyable experience for the 36 members of the team.
