My best race was: Windermere Cup in the varsity four. Our boat had been working very hard, pushing ourselves to our limits to have a good, strong race and on that morning, it all came together.
After I graduate, I plan to: I will be commissioned in the U.S. Army and I will be an Engineer. Later, I will go to Law School and practice law for the Army.
f I could tell my incoming teammates one thing, it would be: To treat rowing as a break from school and see it as an opportunity to become a stronger person physically and mentally than any other student on this campus.
