Students gather to sign up for T.C. Williams High School Crew.
It was "Up Day" at the Dee Campbell Boathouse on Saturday, Feb. 18 — sign-up day for new rowers on the T.C. Williams High School Crew Team, and clean-up day to make sure the dock is ready for the year. Above, student athletes and parent volunteers work on the dock. The 2012 T.C. Williams Spring Crew season marks the 65th year of public school rowing in the City of Alexandria, which dates back to 1947 when a Washington, D.C. policeman named Julian Whitestone and a Navy employee named Jack Franklin started training young men from what was then George Washington High School at the Old Dominion Boat Club.
