Third Term - The Regatta Looms
Spring has sprung, and so has third term sport. The Brentwood fields, courts and waterfront are flooded with a full array of sports action. Our boys rugby, girls field hockey, and senior rowing teams have returned from their respective tours to Argentina and California and are ready and raring to go. Similarly, our golf, tennis, girls rugby, and girls soccer teams are enjoying the start of their competitive seasons.
Without question, the highlight in April will be the 43rd Annual Brentwood Regatta running April 26-28. While this regatta is one of the largest and most highly regarded high-school regattas in North America, it has become much more than just a series of rowing races. With almost 4,000 visitors to Brentwood’s campus, the entire school will work all weekend long to ensure these guests have a first class experience.
Entrepreneurship classes will be running their ventures, our musicians will be displaying their talent on stage, many of our buildings will be converted to dormitories, and our fields turned into parking lots. The dining hall and facilities staff will be working overtime and every student and teacher will have a set of tasks to complete, but the end project is always well worth the effort and the festival atmosphere is one that all will certainly enjoy. Amidst all of the hustle and bustle will be some 1,800 rowers competing on the water.
With the sun shining and so much outdoor activity, the third term is always an exciting one for Brentwood athletics. We look forward to what lies ahead.
