Girls' Varsity Crew

Head Coach: Carly Borken

Program Director: Carly Borken 

The goal of Taft Girls Crew is to create a supportive environment where coaches and teammates push each other towards competitive success as individuals, as a boat, and as a team.   

Girls enter the program with a variety of experience.Some have rowed in middle school, while many try it for the first time at Taft.Thus, we place special emphasis on our novice program where we focus on developing the good technique, the physical strength, and the self discipline that the sport demands.Many of our most successful varsity rowers started as novices at Taft.  

Our racing season, for all boats, is geared towards the New England Championship Regatta.Since joining the league in 2001, Taft Girls Crew has seen increasing success and maintains a rigorous schedule against some of the strongest fours programs in New England.  

Many graduates of Taft Crew have gone on to row in college at both the Division I and Division III levels.Taft rowers make up the crews of schools such as UPenn, UCLA, Villanova, George Washington, and the US Naval Academy.
