Montgomery Blair High School is the county’s largest public high school and one of the most diverse. In the fall of 2008, a motivated group of students and parents believed deeply that the sport of rowing should be available at Blair just as it is in some other county schools. In just four years, Blair Crew went from start-up novice team to gold-medal winners in 2012. That tradition of success continues today, with boats qualifying for Nationals in 2022.
The rowing program is in its 14th year as a club sport affiliated with Montgomery Blair High School. It receives no funding from Montgomery County Public Schools and is managed by a volunteer board of directors.
