Did you walk on to the lightweight rowing team?
What would be lost if Dartmouth eliminates the Lightweight Rowing Team?
How many of the college’s teams welcome walk-ons with no experience or previous athletic ability? There aren’t many and the college would be losing one. The goal should be increasing opportunities to participate, not falling into the trap of college sport professionalization. I didn’t consider myself an athlete until I found rowing. I’m grateful for all the ways it enhanced my education.
