MRC congratulates Gold Medal Olympian Lauren Schmetterling
What inspired you to go to your first rowing practice; was there anything memorable about it?
My mom encouraged me to go to my first rowing practice in high school because I was tall and strong, and I ended up rowing for Moorestown Rowing Club for four years. We erged out of a teammate's garage in the winter, and the boats were kept outside all year, inside a barbed wire fence. Now, they have a beautiful boathouse; they've also come a long way in recent years.
Moorestown Crew is a New Jersey nonprofit corporation that is parent-sponsored to provide training and competition in the sport of rowing for students of Moorestown High School in Moorestown, New Jersey. Unfortunately, we are only able to serve students from Moorestown High School with our fall and spring racing teams. Our summer programs are open to everyone.
We are dedicated to the philosophy that all Moorestown High School students who are interested in rowing with us have the opportunity to do so, regardless of ability to pay. Anyone who wishes to row but feels the cost of doing so would be a financial hardship should contact the club's

Update 01/26/2017 Team,
I just wanted to let everyone know that I have received...
I just wanted to let everyone know that I have received confirmation that we are again going to Lake Lenape for a race. This year we're headed down there on April 8th. The calendar shows us going to Flick 4 on April 9th, but we may pull out of that race. We typically do just one of the races, but last year we did both because we missed a few races and a bunch of water time. We've been blessed with a mild January but if it turns cold and we are delayed getting on the water/have multiple races canceled we will double-up again this year.
Additionally, one final plea - PLEASE get your uniform orders in! Novices are required to order a unisuit and racing shirt. Varsity is required to have a uniform and racing shirt, but you should still have one from last year.
