My name is Cortlynn Matsuo and I am a junior at Presentation High School. I joined Los Gatos last year, and learned that rowing is a sport that revolves around team work and dedication. Rowing to me has become a huge part of my life where I was able to meet many caring people such as my coaches and fellow teammates. This sport has offered me so much more than just a way to get into shape, it has taught me many valuable life lessons such as time management, the importance of hard work, and breaking down "impossible" barriers. Rowing is also a sport that requires new equipment such as oars and boats in order for our team to be able to perform at our best, and the money that is raised will benefit our team and allow us to compete at our best. All of your donations will allow us to get new equipment for our team, and every donation is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support!
