On April 29, 2012, Churchill Crew competed against 14 teams in the Maryland High School Rowing Championships at Washington College in Chestertown, MD. Sunny skies and warming temperatures made it an ideal day for a rowing event in this charming town on the Eastern Shore.
Crews raced a 1500-meter course on the picturesque Chester River. In the first heat of its class, Churchill Crew’s Women’s Varsity 4+ boat came in first place (6:11:3) against B-CC, Bryn Mawr and three other boats. This qualified Churchill’s Women’s 4+ for the final race, in which it won third place (7:01:3) after B-CC and Whitman, outperforming two boats from Walter Johnson.
