“Row, Row, Row your boat,” said our rowing experts who came to talk with our preschoolers in the Rainbows and Bubbles groups about life on the crew team. TPS alumus Ethan Genyk ‘10, a recent graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, visited our preschoolers and shared some artifacts from his tenure on his high school and college rowing teams.
We learned that a coxswain sits at the stern of the boat and that after a race you may get thrown into the water to celebrate a win. Ethan also shared a collection of shirts that symbolize the many victories he’s been lucky to experience. The losing team hands over the shirts off their back and the winners wear them!
