Crew has a long tradition at Hamilton College, beginning in the mid 1800's, just after the Civil War. At this time, the team practiced on the Chenango Canal, which stretched from Utica to Binghamton. Located at the bottom of College Hill, the canal provided a perfect setting for a popular sport at Hamilton. A point worthy of note is that Hamilton competed at the legendary 4th of July races on Saratoga Lake in 1875 & 1876. details Hamilton College Crew website
