Just Announced: SHHS Crew Is Headed To Boston!

SHHS Crew has been selected to race a Men’s Eight and a Women’s Eight in this year’s Head of

the Charles Regatta (HOCR) in Cambridge, Massachusetts on Sunday, October 23.

Shaker will be racing in the largest and, after the Olympics and the Henley Royal Regatta, the

most prestigious crew competition in the world! Over 2200 crews from 33 countries and 34

states competed at last year’s Head of the Charles Regatta.

Congratulations on being the first Shaker Heights 8-person Crews to be selected to compete in

this great event! And thanks to Coach Valerian for his consistent pursuit of this endeavor.

Go Raiders!

SHHS Crew Competes at the Head of the Cuyahoga (HOTC) Regatta

SHHS Crew Men’s and Women’s Teams are competing at the 2016 Head of the Cuyahoga

(HOTC) Regatta on Saturday, September 17 – the only ‘home’ competition of the season.

Everyone is invited to cheer them on and celebrate the ‘home teams’ of Greater Cleveland at

the Cleveland Rowing Foundation (CRF) Boathouse in the Flats Rivergate Park and along the

Cuyahoga River.

CRF hosts the HOTC regatta every year in mid-September - open to high school, collegiate and

adult competitors from around the country in both sweep and sculling events. The 2015

HOTC had over 440+ entries of rowing clubs and programs from across the U.S., and it grows

every year. For more HOTC details, visit www.clevelandrows.org.

The Cuyahoga River provides a unique opportunity for rowers to navigate the challenging turns

of Cleveland’s crooked river over the 4800-meter course. This racing distance, called a “head

race,” is the standard race format for regattas in the fall season.

Hope to see you at this great free, fun event. Come and cheer on the Shaker Crew Raiders!
