T. C. Williams Girls Varsity 8 And Girls Freshman 8 Win Gold At Canadian Nationals

TC Girls win in CanadaTuesday, June 10, 2014 - News - First time since '92 that Titans have captured Canada's top award in both junior and senior events

The T.C. Williams High School Girls' Varsity 8 and Girls' Freshman 8 accomplished something this past weekend that no Titan Crew team has accomplished since 1992: They both won gold at the Canadian Nationals. Held in St. Catharines, Ontario, the Canadian Nationals are Canada's equivalent of the national championship regatta for high school rowing teams. As such, the event attracts the fastest boats from across Canada, and a handful of top boats from the United States, as well.

Coxswain Kathrina Policarpio Wins First David W. Haynes Award

First David W. Haynes AwardWednesday, June 4, 2014 - News - T.C. Williams junior coxswain Kathrina Policarpio has been selected as the first recipient of the David W. Haynes Award, a new honor that was established this year to not only pay tribute to a former Titan rower, but to recognize the most inspiring member of the T.C. Crew team each season. The award is named after David W. Haynes, who rowed on the 1973 T.C. Williams Boys Varsity 8 that won the National Championship and competed at the Royal Henley Regatta in England. Haynes passed away this past December. As a tribute, his teammates on the '73 boat established this annual award.

"David's bright smile and positive energy are remembered by all those whose lives he touched," stated Chip Lubsen, who rowed with Haynes on the '73 Varsity 8 and went on to win a Silver Medal in the 1984 Olympics. "We established this award as a way to honor his memory and make sure that his spirit lives on in the T.C. Williams rowing program."

The award has two main criteria - it must be selected by the members of the crew team and given to the individual who most inspires them to improve in all facets of being a competitor and teammate. Policarpio has been a member of the T.C. Crew team since the eighth grade. Among other awards, she has won two Bronze medals at the Scholastic Rowing National Championships. Presenting Policarpio with the David Haynes Award were Lubsen and some of Haynes' other teammates, along with members of Haynes' family, including his wife and son.

At 11:00 am, a meeting will be held for all parents to kick-off the season and answer any questions you may have. At 1:00 pm, all rowers will be required to take a swim test at Chinquapin.

  • Next Monday, February 24th is the first practice of the season. Moving forward, practices this spring will be held on Monday - Friday from 4-6:30 pm, and on Saturday mornings from 7-10:00 am. An after-school activity bus will be available to take kids to and from practice.
