Ithaca Crew Underway

The spring season started with our annual Spring Break trip to Lake Lanier. It was a cold week and the athletes were challenged with freezing temperatures, white caps on the dock and wet launching. The week ended with 2k scrimmages and the athletes are warming-up for our first home race on April 1st.

The Spring schedule is posted on this page. Special events include Alumni Weekend on April 8-9.  Ithaca crews will be in action both days and we encourage all alums to come back to Ithaca and relive some memories. Plan on an informal gathering Saturday evening. SENIOR day will again fall on our last home race, April 15th.

Looking for some new crew gear the Online store closes tonight at Midnight. You can now find youth, toddler and baby sizes. pspunlimited.com
