Paul G. Hamm ‘03 Boat Christening - Sunday, April 28 at 3pm

We will dedicate a Hudson eight-person racing shell in honor of Paul G. Hamm ‘03 who has had a tremendous impact on Gonzaga and on our rowing program as an athlete, as a coach, as a teacher, and as a mentor to many of our boys. The ceremony will be held at our boathouse at 3pm on Sunday, April 28th. All athletes and their families are welcome to attend. The boys should wear a jacket and tie for this event. Please look for a SignUp Genius soon for the boat dedication.

Shrewsbury Cup - Saturday, April 27

Gonzaga Crew heads to Lake Marburg in Codorus State Park located near Hanover, PA for the Shrewsbury Cup Regatta with Central Catholic High School and Chaminade High School. This race is for all athletes. The buses will leave Gonzaga at approximately 7:30am.  The park is about 80 miles from Gonzaga. Racing normally runs from about 10:15am - 12:15pm. In keeping with tradition, all three teams will enjoy lunch together after the racing and team trophy ceremony. Please look for a SignUp Genius soon and be sure to R.S.V.P.  by 12 noon on Monday, April 22 as we need to confirm numbers with Central Catholic and Chaminade

Spectators should follow signs for the swimming pool, not the marina.  Please be aware that ticks are very common at this location so you may want to plan for long pants and boots.

Directions are here for Codorus State Park.

See the map below for spectator parking and viewing - lunch tents are set up near the lower parking lots by the pool, spectator viewing is lakeside down the hill behind the swimming pool area.  Please do not drive to the parking lot where the team trailers are set up. The boys will come to the lunch tents after the trophy ceremony.
