“This is my novice season, so attending the regatta was an incredible opportunity to gain racing experience,” Brooke Hindinger ’25, a member of the girls’ team, said. “My teammates were so supportive of my learning the ins and outs of the race. We picked up skills together and were able to form bonds to become stronger than ever.”

“The atmosphere was amazing, with thousands of spectators along the course and an overwhelming number of Hoggers in attendance,” said coxswain Curtis Adams-Buyea ’24, noting that his crew shaved nearly 40 seconds off the previous year’s varsity first boat time. “The boys were motivated to represent NMH well!”

This Saturday, Oct. 28, NMH boys’ and girls’ teams join forces on campus in mixed squads for the final big event of the fall season. They’ll compete — in costume — in a variety of contests in front of the Draper Riverhouse. 

“Prizes will be awarded, songs will be sung, and there might even be a limerick contest to boot,” said boys’ rowing coach David Reeder. “Parents are welcome to attend this fun event to help us celebrate a successful season on the Connecticut River.”
