2014 Royal Henley Regatta Semi-Finalist - U19 4+ for West Side Rowing Club
Juniors U19 team
My name is Sally Rozumalski, I attend Niagara Wheatfield High School. I am a hard working honor student interested in business finance and law. I currently row for West Side Rowing Club in Buffalo, NY and I swim for Buffalo Area Aquatics (FKA: STAR Swimming). I have been swimming competitively since I was 6 years old. In 2012 I started to row for the West Side Rowing Club and I really enjoy it. I was a New York State champion in the freshman 8 boat. In 2012, I competed in the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta in the top U17 8+boat. We made it through prelims and placed 5th in the finals. This past spring, at the All High Fontana regatta my senior eight won, while my junior eight took home second. Later that season, we competed in the New York State scholastic championships in Saratoga springs. My junior 8 took the silver medal. I row both port and starboard and my goal for the end of this season is to be around 7.20 in my 2,000 m and to keep improving my technique to the best of my abilities. My most recent 2K ERG test was 7:30.01. In the summer of 2013, my U17 4+ came in second at both the st. Catherine's invitational and the RowOntario championships. We competed in Henley last summer. My 4+ boat made it to semi finals. This winter I focused on rowing, building my strength and stamina. I am looking forward to the spring and summer 2014 seasons.
Well out of school I try to volunteer as much as I can. I help with soup kitchens, my mother's Irish group named LAOH, an activity called challenger baseball for those with special needs, and anywhere I can find. I believe this makes me a leader by showing people my age there is better, more important things you can do with your time. Things that will help someone else, and maybe they might try to change their ways. At school, I participate on 2 varsity sports , swimming and rowing. I try to be a mentor to the younger girls and set a good example for them. Also I try to be someone they can come and talk to about anything from racing to personal dilemmas.
As a student athlete I am aware it is important to be healthy and perform to the best of my ability. Being healthy consists of two things in my mind. First, eating right, staying hydrated and making sure to attend practice as much as possible. To ensure you compete to your maxim potential. Furthermore, there is a second component that is equally just as important. Being of sound mental stability. If you believe you can't do something then, you won't. In order to be the best you that you can be, you have to believe in yourself and your goals. You have to know that your training will give you the physical preparation, but it's up to you to put it into action.
I volunteer with my mother at a soup kitchen called The Hope center. It assists people in finding jobs and getting back on their feet. It also provides them warmth, shelter, and food for the time being. Helping people is of the utmost important to me, first off because it is a value my parents have always instilled in me. Putting others before yourself because someday that could be you, and you never know how much only helping for a few hours can impact someone's life. Furthermore , lending a hand to someone in need ensures them that someone is there for them. It gives them hope which is the whole idea.
