Meeting the minimum criteria does not guarantee selection for either Honorable Mention or Honor Roll. In the past, approximately 40-50% of the nominees earned an award.

6. NEW: Nutrition Tips:
  • Breaking Bread, by USRowing Nancy Clark, MS, RD. “Many athletes and exercisers are staying away from bread these days. But in doing so, they are denying themselves of this pleasurable food. Truth is, any food can be fattening when eaten in excess. As long as the portions fit with your calorie budget for the day, you will not gain undesired weight by eating bread. The problem is not with the bread, but with your relationship with bread. If you feel as though you have no control over it, you may believe that bread is addicting. The smarter solution is to eat bread daily. Denying yourself of this little pleasure leads to “last-chance eating.” And what about white bread? In general, the less processed a food is, the more nutrients it has. Thus, whole wheat breads are preferable to the refined versions. But white bread is not a nutritional zero. You need to look at the whole day’s diet: Is it balanced or unbalanced? Current dietary guidelines recommend half of your grain foods should be whole grains; the other half can be refined, enriched grains- like white bread. While some nutrients (fiber, magnesium, and zinc) get lost in the milling of whole wheat into white flour, other nutrients have been added back. Since 1994, white flour has been enriched with thiamin, riboflavin, iron and niacin in amounts equal to whole wheat flour.” 
  • Peanut Butter’s Benefit, by USRowing Nancy Clark, MS, RD. “In my humble opinion, peanut butter is one of the best sports foods around. Not only is it yummy, it is also health-promoting and performance enhancing. If you are among the many athletes who try to stay away from peanut butter because it is fattening or too fatty, think again. While any food eaten in excess can be fattening, people who eat peanut butter five or more times a week are not fatter than nut avoiders. A Purdue University study reports subjects who ate peanuts daily did not overeat total calories for the day. That’s because peanuts and peanut butter are satiating; they help you feel pleasantly fed. Peanut eaters tend to intuitively eat less at other times of the day. Peanut butter contains primarily health-promoting mono- and poly-unsaturated fat that knock down inflammation. People who eat peanut butter and nuts five or more times a week have lower markers of inflammation than nut avoiders. For athletes who get micro-injuries every time they train, an anti-inflammatory food such as peanut butter is a wise choice. What’s good for the body is also good for the brain. Research suggests that peanut butter eaters benefit from improved brain-blood circulation and mental function. This contributes to enhance processing speed and better short-term memory. Plus, a diet rich in healthy fats helps slow cognitive decline.”

4. Summer Health and Fitness Tips. Here are USRowing nutritionist suggestions for your consideration.
  • Good nutrition is essential to any sport, but the energy demands of rowing make the types of food and their amounts important. Pay attention to the food breakdown of meals and snacks, choosing wholesome foods most of the time (90%), and Fun Foods occasionally (10%) as follows: 
    • Lean protein sources (lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, and eggs) 
    • Low fat dairy/non-dairy sources (lower fat or skim milk, soy milk, low fat yogurt, Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, and cheeses) 
    • Fruit (fresh, frozen, dried and 100% juices) 
    • Vegetables (fresh, frozen, and low sodium canned) 
    • Whole grains (cold and hot cereals, pasta, rice, bread/bagels/rolls, and crackers) 
    • Healthy fats (plant oils such as olive, canola, safflower; avocado; nuts and seeds; fatty fish) 
    • Fun Foods (candy, cookies, ice cream, chips and French fries) 
  • One of the easiest ways to ensure a balanced and healthy meal is to divide your plate as follows: ¼ protein, ¼ grains, ¼ fruit, ¼ vegetables, with milk on the side and petite portions of healthy fats. 
  • Food timing, or when the rower eats, is just as important. Make sure the rower is getting enough nutrition by following a schedule with eating, aiming to eat meals and snacks every 3-4 hours. Skipping or delaying meals can translate to inadequate nutrition and reduced performance. 
  • Bottom Line: Young rowers are unique because they are still growing—which is a calorie demand in its own right. Coupled with rowing, energy and nutrient needs are a prime concern for proper growth, minimizing fatigue, and optimal performance. 
5. NEW: Seniors, here is the 2018-19 US Rowing Scholastic Honor Roll application information. Applications will be accepted from July 5, 2018 – September 7, 2018.

WTW Spring Award Ceremony Cancelled and WTW Spring Sports Survey

posted May 30, 2018, 5:05 AM by WTW Crew Webmaster   [ updated May 30, 2018, 5:06 AM ]

We received two messages from Dan Checkosky, the WTW Director of Student Activities that we want to share with you.

The first is that the Spring Awards Ceremony, previously scheduled for this Thursday, has unfortunately been cancelled due to so many WTW teams still competing in post-season events (which is a great thing). All teams will be conducting their own ceremonies. The good news is we already have ours planned for June 11th and hope you can join us. Here is the invite and here is the Sign-up Genius.

The second message included the links to the 2018 WTW Spring Sports parent and student-athlete surveys. These surveys allow WTW to receive feedback from all involved and are anonymous. Please take the time to complete the entire survey to ensure feedback, positive or negative, can be used to continue to improve our spring sports programs. Coaches sit down with the Director of Student Activities and fellow coaches, to discuss both positive and negative responses in order to help in personal growth, development of the programs, and create more awareness of concerns among athletes and parents.

Mr. Checkosky sends his thanks and also passed along his congratulations on a successful 2018 season!
