PHOTOS: First-Ever North Jersey Championship Regatta Held at Overpeck
Teaneck Rowing Club takes part in historic regatta. Share your photos in the gallery.
Rowers from Teaneck and more than a dozen other area schools took to the water at Overpeck Lake Saturday for the inaugural North Jersey Championship Regatta, drawing thousands of rowing fans to the county park.
While North Jersey high school teams traditionally competed on Philadelphia’s Schuylkill River and the Cooper River in Camden, Bergen County officials have said the lake’s straight 2000-meter course provided an ideal venue for the historic event.
Teaneck Rowing Coach Clemens Reinke led the regatta. The Teaneck Rowing Club sponsors both the Teaneck and Leonia high school crew teams.
