BRIDGEWATER, NJ - He is currently the only single-handed sailor on the Bridgewater-Raritan High School team, but junior Dennis Wieboldt is hoping to expand the team he started just this year.

“Bridgewater-Raritan High School encourages students to demonstrate leadership in both academics and the community,” he said. “This mission, along with my passion for sailing, came together to help create the first BRHS sailing team.”

Wieboldt said he worked with the school’s athletic director, principal, vice-principal and superintendent to get approval for the 2017-2018 school year.

“I am profoundly grateful for all of the administration’s help and support in getting the team started,” he said.
