Jim Glavin, now the rowing coach at St. Joseph's Prep, can remember the phone call. He was just back in the country after coaching a boat at the world rowing championships when one of his rowers called. They'd dropped the rowing team. "I thought he was kidding," said Glavin. "I thought it was a practical joke. " This was St. Joseph's College, summer of 1975. Title IX, signed into law by President Richard Nixon three years earlier, called for gender equity in educational programs that receive federal funding.

Vicky Opitz promised her partner, Kerry Simmonds, at least one thing: They won't crash. The two are world-champion rowers, world-record holders, and with any luck, future Olympians. And when they dip their oars in the Schuylkill early Saturday morning, they'll be something else, too: rookies. Opitz and Simmonds, who usually row in the eight, will compete together as a pair for the first time at the Head of the Schuylkill Regatta. "I know the Schuylkill pretty well," Opitz said.

They came from nowhere, a motley crew of national-team rejects who stumbled onto Boathouse Row looking for a coach and a chance. A little more than 10 years ago, Dan Lyons, Robert Espeseth, Ted Swinford and John Riley headed to the World Rowing Championships in Nottingham, England, to represent the Penn Athletic Club. Their aim was to give hope to all the rowers who didn't register the strongest ergometer scores or have bodies built by Atlas. They came home in August 1986 with a gold medal in the men's four without coxswain, something no U.S. boat has accomplished since.

J.B. Kelly was entertaining guests at the Vesper Boat Club last week when he paused to describe the sad state of the venerable boathouse before the completion of recent restorations. "The foundations along one side had sunk 12 inches," said Kelly, president of the club and the grandson of John B. Kelly, who remains the most famous name in Philadelphia rowing more than eight decades after winning three Olympic gold medals. "You didn't have to have beer to feel you were tipsy," Kelly said.

The oars caught the water in a strong, silky cadence that pleased the discerning eye of Michiel Bartman. As the racing shell swept along the Schuylkill on a recent evening, Bartman motored alongside in a launch, shouting instructions through a white megaphone, urging the rowers to "get a little more legs and less back" into their stroke. The four women on the oars, their faces frozen in concentration, translated his instructions into powerful rhythm. And with every smooth stroke, they moved the storied Vesper Boat Club a little closer to regaining its prominence as a center of elite rowing.

If Vesper Boat Club officials hoped hiring John Pescatore as coach would return the club to the triumphant level of the mid-1980s, they got encouragement yesterday. Matt Guerrieri and Dixon Gillis, two highly touted Vesper rowers who are aiming for the 2004 Olympics, raced to a third-place finish in the elite men's pairs final at the 131st U.S. Rowing National Championships on the Cooper River. The third-place finish was one of three that provided a boost for Vesper's beleaguered elite program.
