The Baldwinsville Crew program was started by a devoted parent of one of the team’s first rowers.Donna Dooley recognized her daughter’s passion for rowing.She spent countless hours working with the school district to gain support for her dream – to start a rowing program at Baker High School.
Donna’s dream came to fruition in the spring of 2000 when Baldwinsville’s Crew team began competing in rowing events across the State.We finished our inaugural season winning gold medals in the novice eight division at the New York State Scholastic Rowing Championships.The following year, Baldwinsville repeated the accomplishment at the State Championships.
Now on it's 18th year, the Baldwinsville Crew has established itself as one of the most competitive programs in New York State.The on-going success of this program would not be possible without the incredible commitment of the Crew Booster Club, the full support of the Baldwinsville School District and an absolutely incredible coaching staff.
