Middlebury College Crew is a competitive club program, founded in 1988. Competing against the top teams in New England and across the nation, the team has built a tradition of grit and determination over three decades, and have medaled at events in the Head of the Charles, Dad Vail Regatta, New England Rowing Championships, and the American Collegiate Rowing Association Championship, among others.
Both the men and women seek to advance this tradition every day. Operating as one team, we emphasize physical fitness, developing a positive team culture based on mutual respect and inclusivity, and academic focus. Our rowers are pushed to succeed on and off the water and to be an example of a Middlebury student-athlete.
Unique to many rowing programs across New England, Middlebury Crew is proud to be a no barrier, full acceptance program. All prospective athletes, no matter the experience, ability, or financial need, will be accepted and supported on our team.
Middlebury Crew calls beautiful Lake Dunmore it's home, located just 15 minutes south of campus in the town of Salisbury on the edge of the Green Mountains. The pristine water, the autumnal views, sunrises, and sunsets highlight practices and regattas, becoming a staple of the program.
We compete in both the fall and the spring seasons across the Northeast region against other NESCAC schools, along with other club and university teams. While our primarily competition is focused in eights and fours, there are ample opportunities to race in small boats as well.
The fall rowing season consists of longer head races, culminating with the Head of the Charles in Boston, MA. Spring races, in the classic 2K style, start with one-on-one duals, transition to the New England Championship and Dad Vail Regatta, and end with the American Collegiate Rowing Association National Championship in Oak Ridge, TN.
Several members of Midd Crew had the honor of making the ACRA All-Region Northeast team for 2022! Seniors Olivia Haouchine, Amanda Marks, and Jessica Fitzgerald on the women's squad, and Nicolas Neumeister and Isabelle Gorrivan on the men's squad received the distinction. Great work representing the Panthers, seniors!
Additionally, Head Coach Rich Connell received the 2022 ACRA Northeast Women's Coach of the Year. Two aforementioned oarswomen then went on to make ACRA All-American teams: Olivia Haouchine made All-American first team, and Amanda Marks made All-American second team!
Lastly, 26 Middlebury Crew athletes received ACRA All-Academic honors on either the first team (cumulative GPA 3.8 or higher) or second team (cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher). Congratulations to all!
