Manhasset Crew Team Shines in 2011 Rowing Nationals

Friday, 12 August 2011 00:00

Manhasset High School’s Crew Team concluded their successful spring rowing season by competing in two Nationals championship events.

Both Nationals regattas were qualifying events. Earning NYS Championship titles combined with their performance at the Stotesbury Cup Regatta qualified nine Manhasset boats to compete in this year’s Scholastic Rowing Association of America’s (SRAA) National Championship Regatta held on Cooper River in New Jersey in late May. This same performance at NYS Champs enabled two Varsity boats to earn one of the bids given to the New York region to compete in the Junior National regatta held in Tennessee in June.

Diving With the Boys

Written by Elizabeth Marino Friday, 29 July 2011 00:00

Kelsey Morgan, an upcoming junior at Cold Spring Harbor High School, has achieved great accomplishments on the boys’ diving team. Although nervous at first, Kelsey dove right in, taking the plunge.

Her father, Keith, a resident of Manhasset, dove at St. John’s University and he also coached the diving team at North Hempstead Country Club, proudly sending competitors to the 1984 Olympics. His other two daughters, Brittany, who will be attending University of Virginia this year and Kristen, who will be a sophomore in high school, have both been on the varsity diving team since seventh grade. All three of his daughters have placed in the top 10 spots for the last five years. When the coach asked Mr. Morgan if Kelsey would join the boys team, he didn’t think his daughter would do it. “She went into it,” he said proudly, “and she shocked me that she wanted to do it and did so well.” Although he says it is odd for him to see boys competing against his daughter, he is amazed that she has the confidence to do this.

On the Bay: July 14, 2011

Written by Andrea Watson Friday, 15 July 2011 00:00

For readers familiar with this column, mention has been made during the summer months of a group of racers called Thirsty Thursdays. One can only speculate why they are called that, but a good guess might involve a lively discussion at a bar – preferably overlooking the bay. In any case, this group is comprised of larger PHRF boats from all three yacht clubs on the bay and boats that join that are not affiliated with a club. They have been racing on Thursday evenings for as long as your columnist can remember. For those who might have an inclination to take a stroll down by the bay on Thursday evenings in the summer, you will be treated to a magnificent view of beautiful boats cutting through the waves on Manhasset Bay. That is when there is breeze, of course.
