Connecticut Boat Club (as usual) is sending its team to compete in the upcoming Head of the Charles Regatta. The Head of the Charles will take place on October 21-23, 2022 in Cambridge, MA. It is the world’s largest 3-day rowing competition with 11,000 competitors and over 400,000 spectators.
This year, a number of CBC alums are returning to race with current CBC athletes at the Head of the Charles. This is a testament to the strong bonds made by CBC athletes.
The alums, who hail from Norwalk to Fairfield and everywhere in between, include an impressive list of athletes who are World, US National and NCAA champions. These athletes could have opted to race with their college or US National alumni boats. Instead, they’ve decided to race for CBC — their high school club team. With the level of talent on this team, it is likely the results will be impressive.
The returning athletes include:
Kathy Isaza (Syracuse): Norwalk
Isa Fitter (USC): Fairfield
Jess Ferrante (BC): Fairfield
Meg Galloway (Yale) : Ridgefield
Kaitlyn Kynast (Stanford): Ridgefield
CSey Clifford (Brown) : Darien
Kath Squitieri (Brown) : Wilton
Lauren Squitieri (Penn): Wilton
Connecticut Boat Club (CBC) is a high-performance girls’ youth rowing club based on the Norwalk River in Norwalk, Connecticut. It was founded in 2010 by head coach Liz Trond and includes girls throughout southwestern Connecticut and Westchester County, NY. The club is focused solely on girls and young women and has made an impact on the lives of so many girls throughout the years. The athletes develop friendships on the team that last well beyond their time spent on the water both during high school and well into the future.
