Athlete Q&A
What does K-State Rowing mean to you?
K-State Rowing to me means a family away from home that are all working together toward a common goal to succeed.

How is rowing different than other sports you've been involved in?
Rowing compared to other sports is physically and mentally much more challenging.

What keeps you coming back to the team each year?
What keeps me coming back to the team is the fact that I absolutely love my teammates and coaches. It also challenges me to keep fighting to better myself both within my fitness and in school.
