Four Husky Alumni Named To U.S. World Championship Crews
Four Husky alumni were named to the U.S. national rowing crews that will compete in the World Championships, August 23-30 in Poznan, Poland.
Katelin Snyder was selected to cox to women's eight. Snyder, who won gold with the 2008 women's U23 eight, recently graduated from the UW, where she coxed the men's varsity eight for three years. Snyder was the coxswain of the 2009 IRA national champion men's eight.
Olympian Megan Kalmoe, racing with her partner EllenTomek, was named to the senior team back in mid-July after she won the double scull event in the World Cup at Lucerne.
Olympians Brett Newlin and Giuseppe Lanzone were both named to the men's straight four, the same event they raced in at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. In Beijing, the crew finished ninth. Newlin and Giuseppe recently picked up bronze in the four at the World Cup in Lucerne.
