Most memorable crew experience?
One of my most memorable and first crew experiences was on my first day of crew.  I was coming from a different team and I just remember the varsity girls being very nice and inviting. It made transitioning to Sarasota so much easier and less stressful. It was easier to make friends and I loved the team dynamic.

Most embarrassing crew experience?
My most embarrassing moment at crew was when I flipped a quad at practice in front of Coach Monica. We were at the catch about to start a piece, and we suddenly began to tilt towards the water. It was a slow, sad flip which made it even worse. When we flipped over, the boat was guts down it took us all about 10 minutes to get back in. While we were trying to get the boat back right-side up, I hit my head on a rigger and thought I was going to drown. Kirby also had to come over in her launch and help us back in the boat along with Monica. When we got on land we were informed that we were the first quad to ever flip on Sarasota Crew...at least we set a record.

Favorite regatta?
My favorite regatta is Intersquad and Regionals.

What will you miss the most?
I will miss making shirts with my boat before states and regionals. It’s always so much fun and it was great time bond with your boat.

What Crew taught you?
Crew has taught me that I can do more than what I originally thought I could as long as I keep striving for greatness. Crew has also taught me great time management skills which will be a tremendous help to me when I go off to college.
