The departure of many seniors leaves the varsity boatings open to many fine returning sophomores and juniors. The 1968 season will present the greatest challenge to Roosevelt rowing supremacy in recent years. However, the outlook for the season is bright and the squad is confident that hard work will produce a "winner".

Crew is the sport that demands total involvement on the part of all the members of each boat. The record of the team is not determined by a few outstanding individuals, but by the efforts of all the participants. Coach Sanford has found that the oarsmen at Roosevelt have always been willing to make the sacrifice demanded of them by this sport.
The 1966 season brought many honors to our crew team. They represented Dutchess County in the National Schoolboy Regatta in New York City. They were honored by the Poughkeepsie Elks Club at the annual "Night of Champions" dinner. The Hyde Park Lions Club also honored them in a similar manner. They ended the season with thirty wins and one loss.
With many young prospects returning next year from last year's crew, Mr. Sanford, the new coach, is looking forward to very successful future seasons.
No names for the boys.
Crew appeals to the boy who can discipline himself to hard work and hwo takes pride in a good performance without thought of individual glory.
For Coach Everett Westa's hardpulling lads, victory was usually only a fraction of a second away. The high points of the season came when the green and gold swept Highland from the Hudson, and was edged out in the National Regatta at Washington D.C.
When Coach Richard King takes over this spring, he will be faced with the job of filling six slots in the Varsity boat.
This spring, the Varsity boat will boast four returning oarsmen who have experience and a winning tradition. Chances are good that they will improve on last year's mark.
Roosevelt rowers outmuscled Arlington in their first contest on the Hudson to make a clean sweep of a four race regatta. FDR came in fourth in the jayvee and varsity finals of the 10 school Hudson-Champlain regatta after copping first place in a preliminary test against four other schools. poughkeepsie's powerhouse edged the Presidents by four seconds in the Championship Regatta, but the determined Roosevelt third boaters, who had the best season of the four crews, uncorked a blistering sprint to beat the Pioneers in a thrilling finish.
Coach Decker, who piloted RHS to two area championships in four years, is now Freshman Coach at Columbia University.
