After a strong finish at last week’s Hebda Cup Regatta in Wyandotte, Crestwood was back on the Detroit River on Saturday morning for the 46th annual Wyandotte High Schools Regatta (Wy-Hi).

While the heavy rain in the area had finally stopped, rowers were halted by another force of nature.

High winds created dangerous conditions on the water and the regatta was stopped before several of the final races could be finished. Team points were not counted at the event, which was held behind the Wyandotte Boat Club.

Last week at the Hebda Cup, the Chargers tied for second on the men’s side and tied for third in combined points.

On Saturday, the Crestwood squad came away with two medals.

In the Women’s Quad, the Chargers took gold with a time that was about 56 seconds faster than second-place Trenton. Grand Rapids Forest Hills Central earned the bronze medal and Saline was fourth.

The other medal for Crestwood was a bronze in the Men’s Lightweight 8. Grand Rapids Forest Hills Central was first in the race and second place went to Grand Rapids Forest Hills Northern. Also, Roosevelt was fourth and was followed by Saline, Grosse Ile and FHE.

This Saturday, the Chargers will head south to Ohio and will compete at the Midwest Scholastic Championship in Zanesville.
