Which Northern Virginia High School Crew Team is best? The Winner is…

The unanswered question:

We have a really good idea which team is best in a particular event. Competitions answer that question for us. Individuals can probably be ranked as well. I suspect this would be done by comparing erg times.

But when we go to a competition, we usually hear people yelling for a school. Walking around regattas, I didn’t see a single T-shirt proclaiming someone’s erg time. I did see a lot that said “Robinson Crew” or “Westfields Crew” or “Oakton Crew”. Given those categories… which team is best?

I don’t know of any ranking by school. I didn’t see anything when I searched Google. I don’t know who might have a system. Since I couldn’t find one – . . . → Read More: Which Northern Virginia High School Crew Team is best? The Winner is…

Improving Performance – Maximizing Opportunities

This post starts with a story. I’m sure this story comes in several forms – but this is the one I’m familiar with:

In today’s ‘something for nothing’ environment, a lot of folks would say the junior salesmen got ripped off. I disagree. $10 (even back then) was probably cheap for the . . . → Read More: Improving Performance – Maximizing Opportunities

Predicting Rowing Performance – Part 3

Last time we looked at how we graphed a race using intervals for a particular class (such as Men’s First Four). Over the course of a season we have more than one race.

In my last post on my graphing method we looked at only one day of racing. Those green lines are simply connecting all the occurrences of a particular team. For example – all the McLean races are connected together. That way I can find McLean from one week to the next. I can also see where lines cross (one team beats another one week – then they trade positions in a future race.) In those cases you try to gather more information to see who might win.
