The Washington men's and women's crew teams are looking for walk-on rowers to join the squad in the fall. No previous rowing experience is necessary. According to men's assistant coach Rick Gherst, "the walk-on athlete is what Washington Rowing was built on. We are committed to making sure that opportunity still exists."
The University of Washington rowing team had 15 former and current athletes and coaches competing at the highest level of the sport at the World Rowing Championships held in Chungju Tangeum Lake, Korea, from Aug. 24-Sept. 1.
As with all international regattas this season, Washington rowing will once again be well-represented when the 2013 World Rowing Championships begin this Sunday.
