The Row New Jersey community is excited to wish the class of 2022 a big congratulations and thank you for their contributions to our program!

Row New Jersey is a competitive club rowing program that draws athletes from a range of  counties and schools. The class of 2022 is composed of athletes from 12 different area high schools. Many of our graduating seniors have been with the program for the entirety of their high school career, if not longer. While some have joined later on, each member of the class of 2022 has been an important part of Row New Jersey’s success.

The members of the class of 2022 have represented Row New Jersey in competition well, including impressive finishes on the regional and national level.
