Case Crew Parent's Page

the racing season? Need information about out of town races, where to eat, where to stay, where to gather?
The Spartan Alumni Rowing Association (S.A.R.A.) functions as a "booster club" for Case Crew and is here

to get involved supporting the students during races and various events.
