Amanda Lorei tried a passel of sports when she was in grade school - basketball, field hockey, soccer, track, cross-country - and said she failed at every single one. "I did really almost any sport that was available to me at the time . . . and I was really a liability on the field in any sport I was in," she said. Sara Romano participated in a bunch of sports, too. You name it, she said, and she did it, and was pretty good at it until fourth or fifth grade. "Then I just started getting slow and lazy," Romano said.

Prince William didn't return with them to Absecon, N.J., but a trip to England was still a fairy tale for the Holy Spirit girls' crew. The Spartans' varsity eight arrived in Atlantic County Tuesday night as champions of the Henley Women's Regatta in Henley-on-Thames, England, culminating a storybook season with the happiest of endings. Chauffered from Philadelphia International Airport in a limousine provided by Trump Inc., the crew and coaches received a police escort on the final leg of their journey.

It's the 16th year for the women's event, scheduled for Friday through Sunday.. The men's Henley Royal Regatta is set for July 2-6.

The women's crew from Villanova caught a glimpse of Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle, visited the Tower of London and Oxford University, and ate meals at 17th-century English pubs. England was joyful as well as jolly for the Wildcats. The women's varsity eight advanced to the semifinals of the college eight race at the Henley Women's Regatta on June 22 and 23. From a field of 43 entries, the Wildcats won their first three head-to-head races before finally falling in the semifinals to Dublin University by just 6 feet.

For St. Joseph's Prep coach Jim Glavin, the goals for each high school crew season are simple: Teach youngsters how to row well. Be successful on the river. Win at least one of the significant races, the big ones being the Stotesbury Cup Regatta and the national championships. Then and only then will it be time to discuss what Glavin calls the dream: going to the crown jewel of the sport, the Henley regatta in England. "It's a reward after the season," Glavin said. "It means that you've accomplished enough here that you want to go to race the best high school crews, at least in most of the world.
