Personal Highlights

My name is Lauren Andersen, and I started rowing my freshman year at Rumson-Fair Haven Regional. I began with winter training, then in the spring of 2018 I stroked my team's freshman 8. Over the summer I trained on the water, erg, tanks, and lifting. In the fall of 2018 I stroked my team's top girls boat with three juniors, a varsity 4+. This season we got third place at Navy Day, and 24/68 at the Head of the Schuylkill. This winter season I trained hard six days per week lifting and erging. I managed to shave nine seconds off my 2k time. Now I have a 7:44. This spring I began rowing in the JV4x where we won Lake Lenape Sprints. Then, I was moved back to the V4+ and we placed 3rd/16 at Cooper Cup, 7th/29 at Mid-Atlantic Championships, and 15th/57 at Stotesbury. I spent my summer after sophomore year 2019 at the Mid-Atlantic Women's Olympic Development Camp on the Schuylkill River for three weeks, then traveled to Sarasota, Florida to compete in the ODP Summer Cup. There, I raced in the U17 C 2x and won by open water, and the U17 A 8+ and placed 5th. The rest of my summer I am spending training rowing in the mornings on the water, lifting midday some days, and erging/ tanking nights. I am excited for my fall season racing at Kings Head (in a mother-daughter 2x), Head of the Christina, Navy Day, and the Head of the Schuylkill!

Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

Ever since I began rowing spring 2018, I fell in love with the sport. Despite the pain and stress of rowing, nothing is better than the feeling after you win a race or PR. Because I have improved so much over my first years of rowing, I am sure that over my next two years of high school I will only get faster, therefore I want to continue my rowing career in college and see how much more I can challenge myself. Being a student-athlete is a title I am proud of, and I hope to continue balancing my rowing and academics for another four years.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

Currently I am a sophomore, and the captain position on the team is only open to the seniors, however I am hoping that by the time I am a senior I will earn that title. I do my best to help set a good example for my younger teammates and everyone around me at rowing. Outside of rowing, I try to lead by volunteering and partaking in community service such as volunteering at a garden for the local food shelter. Also, I participate in storytelling club where we go to a local elementary school, read to the kids, and organize activities with them.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

As a student-athlete, I am often faced with an endless to-do list. Over time, I have found a balance so that I can excel academically and athletically. I pursue healthy athletic performance by assuring that I complete all of my work in my free time before or after practice, and leave enough time to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep every night. Also, I eat complete breakfasts, lunches, and dinners with healthy snacks in between to ensure my calorie intake is enough to maintain my constant training. My team stretches and warms up properly before every practice, and cools down, stretches, and if necessary, uses ice or heat to avoid and prevent injuries. All of these actions are the ways in which I work towards a healthy athletic performance.

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

At my school, I am a part of key club, habitat for humanity, and storytelling club. For key club, we must complete a minimum of 25 hours of community service to remain a member of the club. This club is important to me because it ensures that regardless of how busy I may be with my academics and rowing, I still make time to give back to my community. For habitat for humanity, I occasionally am able to help with builds at our local habitat location. Also, I participate in contributing to fundraising efforts at each fundraiser we host. Lastly but definetely not the least, storytelling club is my favorite of the three. Once a month, we take a trip to a local elementary school to read books and lead activities with kindergarteners in one of my neighboring towns. I enjoy seeing the kids excitement when we visit and give them books. All of these services I participate in help me remember that there is always something you can do to give back to the community.
