States Recap: Great Way to Close 2023 Rowing Season
Great results from Massachusetts Public Schools Rowing State Championship in Lowell
Big congratulations to our Medford High Mustangs' Crew Team for a successful day at "States" regatta on Sunday, May 28, 2023 and kudos to Coach Manes, Coach Diettrich, and Coach Stavros for guiding our student athletes this year.
All the boats competed strong and showed improvement over the season with 3 boats earning medals! We thank our graduating seniors for providing leadership to the whole crew and, given what we have seen from our novice rowers on the water, the future looks bright for this program.
Big thanks to family and friends who came to cheer on our Mustangs! While we are grateful for ALL those who provided logistical support and food/refreshments, we'd like to give a special shout out to the DesAutels, Purifory, and Matos families for providing breakfast and lunch for the team and family tent.
