Tired but triumphant, rowers from St. Joseph's Prep returned to a hero's welcome yesterday, one day after winning the Princess Elizabeth Challenge Cup at the Henley Royal Regatta. About 40 friends and family members were on hand in the school courtyard at 17th and Girard to greet the Hawklets, whose varsity eight defeated the Groton (Mass.) School by 13/4 lengths Sunday to win the championship in Henley-on-Thames, England. Warm applause welcomed the senior-dominated team as it stepped from a cruiser bus on a steamy summer afternoon.

For the second time in four years, La Salle High School Prep's heavyweight eight today will begin a quest for rowing's top prize: victory at the Royal Henley Regatta, in Henley-on-Thames, England. La Salle's last trip, in 1990, ended unfortunately; La Salle lost its first race, to Shiplake College School, a British crew. This time, La Salle would not meet Shiplake unless both crews advance to Sunday's semifinals. The La Salle crew, winner of both the Stotesbury and national championships this spring, must win head-to-head races today through Saturday to reach the Henley semifinals.

They were nervous. They were excitable. They were tense. All of which made the La Salle High School heavyweight eight's first victory ever at the Royal Henley Regatta, by two boat lengths over local English entry St. Elizabeth's, that much more promising to coach Bob Reinhardt. "They didn't have the best row of their life, but they won," Reinhardt said from Henley-on-Thames, England, last night. "They rowed nervous and flustered, but still gained throughout the race. There's a lot of good in that for the next race.

Jim Glavin sat at his desk in his office on the second floor of the St. Joseph's Prep boathouse Sunday afternoon. Every minute or so, the Prep rowing coach refreshed his computer's Internet browser. His counterpart from the Abingdon School in Oxfordshire, England, kept ducking his head into the room to see if the results had been posted online yet. The varsity eight race at the Head of the Schuylkill Regatta had been over for more than an hour, and the two crews, joined by a special partnership between their schools, gathered at the Prep's comfortable quarters to learn their fate.

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.

St. Joseph's Prep had fallen behind early in its second-round race Thursday at the Henley Royal Regatta when coxswain Lou Lombardi decided it was time for a tribute. The junior called a move in honor of teammate Brendan Adams, who could not compete at Henley because of a commitment to the Naval Academy. The Hawks responded, taking the lead and stretching it to almost a length. They then withstood a varying headwind in the last half of the race and defeated Hampton School of Middlesex, England, to advance to the quarterfinals of the Princess Elizabeth Challenge Cup. The Prep's eight with coxswain finished the 2,112- meter course in 7 minutes, 7 seconds for a 23/4-length victory in the head-to-head competition in Henley-on-Thames, England.
