The crew team this year has been my rock. We are the closest team on campus; the only team that has its own “house”. We have barbeques almost every Friday and travel on weekends to races. It is a great opportunity to get away from the Academy. Best of all, the team consists of walk-ons. There is no previous experience needed to excel in this sport; in fact, many rowing Olympians picked up the sport in high school.
This fall season, Coach Steve Hargis has returned as a Men’s Head Coach. This man is a rowing legend. He has been rowing /coaching for over 30 years and currently coaches the U.S. junior national team in the spring/summer. He has turned the Coast Guard men’s rowing program around. If you want to be a part of something special, the men’s crew team is where it’s at. If you are looking to try another sport, try out men’s crew and be a part of a revolution at the Academy.
