City Honors Crew

The City Honors School rowing program dates back to 1986 when a group of junior and senior women at City Honors organized a team at the West Side Rowing Club. We continue to be one of the only public schools in Western New York with our own team. Led by dedicated, experienced coaches, supported by devoted, enthusiastic parents.  City Honors Crew competes in local, national, and international regattas— a unique high school athletic experience.
