Recruit Weekends Announced
The 2010 high school recruit weekends have been set for April 23-24, 2010 and September 24-25th, 2010. Rowers and coxswains interested in attending GT are encouraged to come; it is a great opportunity to meet the team and coaches as well as see the campus.
In addition to a tour of campus and info. sessions, each high school student will stay with a collegiate rower for the weekend and experience practice with the team, college classes, dining, social activities and more. Past recruit weekends have included admission to the crew’s seating block at a GT football game or a trip to Six Flags over Georgia.
Parents or high school students, please do not hesitate to contact a coach for more information. If one of these dates does not work for you, or it’s too soon to decide, you can talk to a coach to set up an individual visit as well. Check out our Join page to sign up or get more information.
We are looking forward to your visit!

Success at SERCS, Live Results Broadcast
The team travelled to Aiken, SC this weekend to compete at the 2010 Southeastern Regional Collegiate Sprints (SERCS), hosted by UGA. Other schools at the race included Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, College of Charleston, Georgia State, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and more. Georgia Tech showed up ready to compete at this first official sprint race of the season, and it showed. After the preliminary rounds, all of GT’s boats had either moved on to finals or medalled.
At the end of the day, Tech took home gold in both the Men’s and Women’s V8 events, Men’s V4+, Men’s Novice 4+, Men’s and Women’s Lightweight 4+, Women’s pair, and the Men’s single.
This was the first time people could keep track of how the team was doing by looking at live results posted on Twitter. The team is going to try to make this a regular occurrence with every race, so start following GTCrew on Twitter. Don’t forget to become a fan of our Facebook page and check out updates there as well.
