Rowing at Saugatuck in the summers (Westport CT)
At Pomfret School
2nd boat (Stroke Seat) (4s) My sophomore year (Varsity)
I have been rowing for close to 3 years now! My first year was at Saugatuck Rowing Club (Skulling) (No erg workouts) The second year I rowed at Yale and Pomfret School on the JV team. This year I made the 2nd boat and hopefully 1v next year! I can skull, Sweep and row on Port and Starboard. I played Tier 2 hockey in CT for a while then broke my leg and switched to rowing. I think it was a great choice and I have continued to meet new kids at regattas and learned hard work through tough workouts. I hope to improve over the next few seasons and hopefully row in college! I am a hard worker and more than willing to work for a spot.
Some of my other sports:
Sking (For 8+ years)
Cross Country (1 year)
Squash (2 years)
After playing sports like hockey and football I was tired of all the injuries. I just love going out to the boathouse ever day and rowing for 3 hours. When I compete with schools like Belmont Hill and Deerfield has really given me a grip on what rowing is all about.
I was a form rep in our student senate for my freshman year at school, QUEST Leader (Teaches Saturday classes on topics such as drugs and health & Wellness) and a dorm rep as well.
I tend to work out about 3-4 times a week on top of 6 practices a week plus races. I think a lot has to do with how I have been eating this year and how I have managed my time. It is hard but, the end result in the water is worthwhile to see.
