Rower Conlin McCabe Profiled In Hometown Paper
Junior Conlin McCabe has had an impressive career already at Washington, one that was made a little more sterling with his win at C.R.A.S.H.-Bs last weekend.
Sweeping the medal stand in Boston created a big impact for Washington in the rowing world, particularly in McCabe's hometown of Brockville, Ontario. The 6-8 McCabe was profiled today in the Brockville Recorder, which discusses his win at the prestigious erg competition and his overall development as a rower. This summer/fall, McCabe trained in Victoria, B.C., with the Canadian national team, and he later competed under the Maple Leaf at the World Championships in Lake Karapiro, New Zealand.
"He's been training hard with the Canadian national team and I think (Canadian coach Mike) Spracklen got him in tremendous shape," said men's crew coach Mike Callahan. "He's just tough as nails right now and he really wants to prove he deserves a spot on the Canadian team."
McCabe noted in the article he's now looking to break the UW 2K erg record after pulling a 5:48 in Boston. Always good to have a shellhouse full of motivated rowers.
