Did you walk on to the lightweight rowing team?

No

What impact did rowing have on your Dartmouth experience?

It provided me resources and a network to succeed not just in the classroom, but in life. Dartmouth College alone could not have done for me what this team and its alumni did to support me and my goals. The friendships and bonds of this team will last forever.

What impact did rowing have beyond college?

I was provided the foundation in elite athletic training in order to make the national team twice and then use that knowledge to pass on to others as a national team coach. The technical skill required of a lightweight rower has made me a better coach than I could have been otherwise.

What would be lost if Dartmouth eliminates the Lightweight Rowing Team?

An opportunity for diversity and inclusion within Division 1 sports. An opportunity to develop future athletes and leaders.
