Girls Varsity Crew

Girls Varsity Crew

The Nobles girls crew program has a rich tradition, and is one of the leading programs in the ISL. In 2017, the team finished equal first on points at the New England Championships and won the 1st Varsity Fours at the National Scholastic Championships. The program features varsity and junior varsity levels of competition. The Bulldogs race fours with a coxswain. Last year we race as many as 8 fours each weekend in Spring.

The team competes as part of the New England Interscholastic Rowing Association. This league continues to be considered by college rowing coaches as a “hot-bed” for top prospects. In the last 5 years, 12 Nobles Girls Crew graduates have gone on to row at the top college programs in NCAA Division I and Division III.
