Athlete Q&A How is rowing different than other sports you've been involved in? Rowing is different from any other sport I've played because of the amount of teamwork that is truly needed and unison that is required. It's by far my favorite sport I have ever participated in because of the teamwork.
What has rowing taught you about yourself? Rowing has taught me to not doubt myself and to just go out and go after it. I can do so much more than I ever thought I could.
What is your favorite memory from this past season? My favorite memory from this season is my boat coming back from 3rd place at Big 12s and winning Conference USA.
