Most embarrassing crew experience?
Despite the many embarrassing moments I have, one would be at the Plant duel at Benderson in May of 2016. I was bow seat of Lara’s eight and we had to bring the boat up to the side shore to hot seat the boat. Lara asked me to jump out of the boat in order to stop it. I, thinking I was going to land in knee deep water, jumped out of the boat and fell completely underwater. To my surprise, I had found the drop off. I swam back up to the surface to find everyone, including Kirby, laughing at me. I lost a sock and a hair tie, and also got a big bruise on the side of my stomach and left arm from hitting the side of the boat on my down into unknown water. Through her laughter, Lara tried to explain that she had only asked me to put my leg in the water. I still believe she told me to jump out of the boat.

Favorite regatta?
Regionals 2015 in Gainesville Georgia because it was my first regatta out of state.

What will you miss the most?
The last four years of rowing has commanded an intense amount of dedication and commitment. But I leave here with numerous friends and fellowship with my teammates I will never forget.

What Crew taught you?
Sarasota Crew has taught me many things but one of the most important things I have learned is that I am capable of more than I ever thought.
