I started to row at LGRC about 2 1/2 years ago. I instantly fell in love with the sport and the family that surrounds it. I joined the novice men's team this year, and I couldn't be happier. Rowing clears my mind and helps connect me to my teammates and coaches. Throughout our novice year, we travel to many different regattas such as a few in Sacramento, Oakland, and LA. My team and I are fundraising this year to help buy a new boat for the LGRC boathouse. Some of my favorite moments were getting to know my new teammates and creating family bonds.
