2015: First year of rowing, 4th place in men's second 4+ WAMIRA, Men's Senior Four 34th at Stotesbury (we were originally a junior four but then there was an incident in the upper boats and our stroke seat was moved up two days before)
Since I started crew in the fall of my sophomore year, I started on the freshman team. I didn't just stick my nose up and act above them, a have them advice and answered any question they could think of. It was once said that the back of the bus, the kids on the freshman crew team that fall took "AP Gonzaga history and sports" with "Dr. Notarianni."
After practice often we'd go to union station for food. And I would usually be the one to organize this and make sure everyone was included, and that no one got lost from the group.
This year I drive a freshman coxswain to school everyday, according to his parents and coach I have helped him tremendously and helped make the daunting task of high school much easier on him. I personally just feel that I'm doing what I would want someone to do for me.
I also drive 4 kids to practice with me afterschool. All of them are sophomores. All know me from the bus last year and still have questions for me almost every day.
Priority list is as follows
4. Work (I run my own lawn mowing and snow blowing buissness)
5. (If time) social things
Over the summer I helped with the adaptive rowing program at the brigantine rowing club. It was fun I got to meet new people and I got to share the sport I loved with these, most mentally challenged , kids and got them to love it too.
