Most memorable crew experience?
My most memorable crew experience was being in the freshman 8 the first time they won states and being in the varsity four the first time we won states in the history of Sarasota Crew.

Most embarrassing crew experience?
My most embarrassing crew experience ever was 2 years ago a Saturday morning when we were doing a long steady state piece in singles and I was ahead of everyone for the first time ever just cruising boat lengths ahead, and my mom had just told me not wear my sister Oakley’s to practice because she didn’t want anything to happen them. I, of course, disobeyed her and wore them anyways. I was so in the zone rowing next to the 2v when my oar lock came undone and my oar (along with me) flew out of the boat and my sister’s Oakley’s sunk to the bottom of the ocean. Casey came over in the launch laughing and helped me get back in the boat soaked and in tears because I had to break the news to my mom that I wore the glasses to practice and dropped them in the ocean.

Favorite regatta?
My favorite regatta was Regionals 2015 in Georgia. The bus ride was longgg but a blast because we made the best of the 12 hour ride and the race course was BEAUTIFUL and surrounded by trees and rock walls.

What will you miss the most?
I will miss having this place to go every day where I knew we were all in the same boat whether it was going be a good day or a bad day. And getting to just be outside getting a good workout in with people that always made me laugh and make the best of a bad situation.

What Crew taught you?
Crew taught me about time management. Because wow I could not tell you how bad I am at time management. I knew that if I wasn’t at practice on time Saturday morning there would be some bad stuff going down. (The wrath of Kirby). <3
