My Varsity 8+ placed 6th in the state.
As a freshman I was put in a junior varsity 4+ boat with all upperclassmen. During the time I spent practicing with my boat I learned a significant amount about rowing technique as well as teamwork and cooperation. In the beginning of sophomore year I again was put in a boat with all upperclassmen except it was a varsity 4+. I again was able to learn so much from the other girls in my boat and I think I became a better rower after being in that boat. Now during this current spring season I have been in a varsity 4+ and varsity 8+ the past two races and am working hard to keep my spot in these boats. This season I have learned more about endurance than anything else and getting past my mental blocks when I am erging. I realize that seats in a boat need to be earned and that you are not entitled to a spot in a boat if you do not work hard. I am a very competitive rower and I always want to give it my best whether we are on the ergs or on the water. I am constantly pushing to better myself as a rower. I like to choose the erg next to the girls who have similar erg times because it pushes me to be better and motivates me more to get a lower time than them. One of the biggest things I am looking for in a college crew team besides a strong coaching staff and rowing program is a close knit team. I think teamwork is very important in rowing and in such an intense sport you need to have supportive people by your side who will push you to be better. My number one goal for the near future is to go sub 8 minutes on my 2,000 meter piece. I am very motivated to do this and am pushing myself very hard mentally and physically to reach this goal. My team has weekly 2,000 and 1,5000 meter test and so far I have been able to lower my average 500 meter split from a 2:10.4 to a 2:03.1. I believe that with this progress I will be able to reach my goal. I am very serious about rowing in college. Lats summer I attended the Naval Academy rowing camp for girls and I am planning to return again this summer.
Hello! My name is Sydney Mour. I am currently a sophomore at the Institute of Notre Dame and I am a member on the varsity crew team. I am currently in my fourth season. Crew is a major piece of my life. I spend 5-6 days a week practicing with my team. I am also an honors student. I am a very dedicated to my team and to the sport. Crew is a very high demanding sport and I think I have what it takes to row at the competitive level in college. I would really like to row in college and am looking for opportunities to reach out to coaches about rowing scholarships.
