CR Walker High School
CR Walker High School is now rowing twice a week, Monday and Wednesday. We have between 9 - 12 rowers regularly attending practice.
Willecia Scott has advanced to join the NRC Junior team, but she volunteers to coach her newer classmates as well.
We had so much interest from the club fair, we need a second van! With increased transportation, more rowers will be able to get on the water. Please support our programs, and consider becoming a sponsor!
