Most memorable crew experience?
My most memorable crew experience would have to be my very first day at crew. Coming in my junior year to so many new faces was extremely intimidating. I remember jumping right into practice and trying to act like I knew what was happening when I really had no idea. I am pretty sure the first day I almost passed out doing lunges, I accidentally drank from from someone else’s water bottle (I swear yours looked just like mine, Avery), and my pair partner in the boat had to remind me to pause at the finish of the stroke (thanks Christina). Even though it was such a crazy day, it was the first of many crazy days and I would not have changed any of it.

Most embarrassing crew experience?
My most embarrassing memory is one day I was lunging and went up in weight. There was an event going on at Spanish Point and two valet guys were outside waiting to park cars. As I was lunging, I tripped forward, did a somersault, and landed on my back. All the girls were laughing at my the the two valet guys were looking at me like I was the strangest person ever.

Favorite regatta?
My favorite regatta is the State Championships (I am going to combine sculling and sweeping into one regatta). Racing in our backyard at Benderson is one of the most rewarding and enjoyable experiences.

What will you miss the most?
I will miss the family that Crew has given me. From the teammates to the coaches, I feel like this place has truly become a family to me and will miss everyone next year. Seeing the same people for three hours six days a week forces you to be a family, and through the ups and the downs I always knew that my team was by my side.

What Crew taught you?
Crew has taught me to take anything life throws at me and make it work. An extremely hard workout? It’ll be over sooner than you think. Five races in a day? More chances to medal. Fitting an ungodly amount of riggers into an extremely small trailer? They’ll fit. Crew has taught me that anything is possible, all it takes is hard work and dedication.
