Rowing iced for now

West Side Rowing Club Director of Boathouse Operations Miles Schwartz and Junior Program Head Coach  Justin Farrington discuss how winter has delayed the season and what it means for their athletes.

The club, located off of Porter Avenue, is usually on the water around this time, but has been relegated to indoor workouts until the three feet of ice on the Niagara River melts.
