NISKAYUNA — Each week this summer, Niskayuna Rowing has conducted a “Rumble on the River,” a day of intrasquad races using boats of all sizes.

The races feature boys and girls from incoming fifth-graders to rising high school seniors.

At the July 30 version of the event, Noah Chaskin and Grace Smith were the male and female overall champions.
