St. Joe’s Prep Rowing Took Home More Hardware on the River last weekend.

Almost one week after the Drexel Men’s Rowing Team captured the title at the historic Dad Vail Regatta, St. Joe’s Prep’s Boys Crew captured some additional hardware at the other historic Philadelphia Regatta, the Stotesbury Regatta.

This year is the 85th Anniversary of Philadelphia’s Dad Vail Regatta, the largest intercollegiate rowing competition in all of America. This yearly rowing competition draws participation from over 100 US Colleges.

This year — at the 85th running of the Dad Vail Regatta — deviated from its traditional position on the Schuylkill River since 1953. Due to dredging in the Schuylkill, this year’s competition will be on the Cooper River in Camden instead.


Once again, St. Joe’s Prep won the most medals and the overall competition at the 180-school competition on Saturday.


Like the Dad Vail Regatta, the Stotesbury Regatta is quite historic. This is, in fact, the 97th year of the Stotesbury, which started in 1927.

Unlike the Dad Vail Regatta, which has been moved this year to the Cooper River in Camden, the Stotesbury remains on the Schuylkill River for its 97th year.


St. Joe’s Prep Crew dates back to 1920.
This is another opportunity for The Prep to make history at a historic Philadelphia event.
