Fall 2019 season recap: In the fall of 2019, Allison Boehm took over as Holy Ghost Prep rowing's new head coach. The team had a strong fall season, competing in three races: Head of the Schuylkill, Philadelphia Frosbite Regatta, and the Bill Braxton Regatta. In each regatta, the team raced aggressively and gained more racing experience, setting the stage for a strong spring 2020 season.

Mercer Row for the Cure at Mercer County Park in Mercer, N.J.

Rowing, one of the oldest Olympic sports and the oldest intercollegiate sport in the country, is the newest sport at Holy Ghost, having started in Fall of 2015. The team practices in the fall and spring at Core Creek County Park in Langhorne, PA and in the winter at school in the Holt Center. Rowing is one of the few sports in which most people have no experience before they come to high school. Anyone can join the crew - if you are willing to work hard!

We race in fall and spring around the Philadelphia region, both on the historic Schuylkill River as well as in New Jersey and at home in Langhorne at Core Creek. Fall races are long, timed pieces called "head races." In the spring we compete in shorter sprint races against private and public school teams as well as club teams from around the region; select crews go on to compete at the National Championships. We also travel overnight at least once per season and have smaller dual meets against prestigious local foes like Lawrenceville, Hun, Peddie, and others.

Rowing at HGP has two seasons: the spring, which is our main, "championship" season, and fall, which still offers the opportunity to earn a varsity letter but which is secondary to our spring season. You do not have to participate in both seasons (but if you do only one it must be spring). We also offer a full winter conditioning program in our dedicated room in the Holt Center.
