Frosh Rower Ryan Schroeder Profiled in CA Newspaper

| No Comments

It's an oft-repeated success story for Washington crew, but one we never get tired of hearing. Before arriving in Seattle, Ryan Schroeder had never touched an oar. Now, he's not only a National Champion, but an international one as well.

A walk-on from Thousand Oaks, Calif., Schroeder rowed in the freshman 8+ that completed one of the more historic seasons in Washington history. The Grunties won a Pac-10 Championship, an IRA National Championship and, perhaps most impressively, a Henley title in England.

Schroeder was the subject of a nice write-up in the Thousand Oaks Acorn. A long-time baseball player in the Los Angeles suburbs, crew wasn't even in the back of Schroeder's mind when he applied to join UW's aerospace engineering program. But at 6-5, he had the ideal build for rowing (height creates considerable leverage on the oar).
