Rowing Frosh Profiled In Bay Area Newspaper
When men's rowing freshman Max Mannisto returned home to the Bay Area, he discovered there was piqued interest with his recent win at the Henley Royal Regatta.
Mannisto was recently featured in The Daily Journal of San Mateo, which chronicled his trip to Henley and the Grunties' Temple Cup victory, one of the more historic moments in the crew program's history. The win capped an undefeated season for the Huskies, which included a Pac-10 Championship and a National Championship at IRAs.
The Belmont native was a recruited walk-on to the University of Washington. But like all who come to row for the UW, he has embraced the experience. Part of what makes being a Husky unique is competing in events like Henley, a pinnacle moment for student-athletes.
"Everyone in the rowing world knows about Henley," Mannisto said in the article. "Rowing is not really a spectator sport at all, and to see so many people there watching was unbelievable."
