POUGHKEEPSIE – The NFA Crew Team, the only community-funded varsity team at NFA, and the rowers of the Newburgh Rowing Club traveled to the Hudson River Rowing Association in Poughkeepsie on June 1, 2013, to compete in Sectionals, the last meet of crew season 2013. Overall, the NFA Boys Crew Team took second place and the NFA Girls Crew Team took second place, said Coach Ed Kennedy, Head Coach of the NFA Varsity Crew Team and Programs Director for the Newburgh Rowing Club.
"Everyone rowed their heart out and I couldn’t be prouder of all our rowers. The NFA Girls Varsity 4+ was exceptional all season long and took first place in their division. The NFA Boys Varsity 8+ has also had a stellar season and took second place in their division. It was another great meet put on by the Hudson Valley Rowing League. We look forward to training in the off season."
