Parents, Athletes, Alumni and Friends,

With school having been back in session for a little over a week, I am happy to report that the team is back on the water and looking extremely solid.  With our accepted entry in the Championship Four at the Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston, everyone is focused on excelling on the erg, in the weightroom, and in the shells.  With a very motivated group of returning athletes, another excellent group of recruited Freshman, as well as a solid transfer student coming to us from Orange Coast Community College,  we are having no troubles getting the needed intensity out of the team as we train!  Look for more on our progress towards Boston, as well as the trip to Sacramento for the Head of the American Regatta, in our next newsletter.

Please also mark your calendars for our 2nd annual Homecoming/Parents event at the USD Boathouse and Garty Pavilion as we "Charge for the Charles" on Friday, October 11th.  Details about times and events that weekend will come out shortly...
