Varsity Boys Crew

The Program

The Nobles Boys Crew program has a rich tradition dating well back to the 19th century - before the school moved from the Back Bay in Boston to its current location in Dedham, MA. Competing in the Youth Four events, all four varsity crews are perennial contenders for top honors at the spring championship regatta on Lake Quinsigamond in Worcester, MA. In addition to the four varsity crews, two JV crews comprise the program.

The team competes in the New England Interscholastic Rowing Association in both dual races and its championship at the end of May. This league is commonly tapped as a source of top prospects by college rowing coaches. Recent graduates have gone on to row at the top college programs in NCAA Division I and Division III.

In 2003, the team traveled to the Royal English Henley Regatta to race in the Princess Elizabeth Cup Division where they reached the semi- finals.  In 2008, at the Youth National Championships, The Boys Varsity Four earned a bronze medal, and came away as Champions the following year in 2009. In 2015, the boys finished second in the Youth 4+ event at the Head of the Charles Regatta-finishing as the top U.S. Crew in that event and the top finishing crew in any event among all entries from Massachusetts.

Coaching Information

Contact Head Coach Accomando at jaccomando0f@nobles.edu

Joshua joined Nobles Crew as the Assistant Varsity Coach (under Lizzy Antonik) for the spring 2014 season. In June 2014, Joshua took over as Head Coach of Boys Crew when he joined the Nobles faculty full time. In addition to coaching crew, he is a member of the English Department, an Admissions Officer, and a coach of Cross Country.

Joshua learned to row at the Greater Lawrence Community Boat Club in Lawrence, MA at the age of twelve through private sculling lessons. The following year, he began rowing competitively with the Middle School Crew at Belmont Hill and continued to row for Belmont Hill for the next six years. Joshua went on to the U.S.   Naval Academy, where he rowed four years with the Lightweight Crew (Navy Lights). Joshua continues to row competitively as a member of Cambridge Boat Club and is the founding member of the Noble and Greenough School Boat Club.

Most rowers do not take up the sport until their freshman or sophomore year of high school—and some Olympic champions started in college—so please don’t hesitate to contact Coach Accomando if you have any interest in rowing or coxing (no experience required). Both boys and girls are welcome as coxswains of Boys Crew.
