Joshua Gautreau completed his first season as a graduate assistant coach for the Cavaliers in 2012 after spending four years as the head coach and program director of the River Rowing Association junior club team in Nyack, N.Y.
In his first season, Gautreau helped lead the Novice Eight to an undefeated spring season, spanning 10 races. The Novice Eight captured its race at the ACC Championships to secure crucial points towards the Cavaliers' team title.
He lead the RRA to a third-place finish in the men's lightweight 2x at the SRA Scholastic Nationals and to numerous medals at the New York State Championship level.
After rowing for Syracuse from 2002-06, Gautreau won the lightweight fours at the Head of the Charles, the Canadian Henley and is a two-time US Rowing National Champion. He competed for the US National Team at the 2011 Pan American Games, where he finished seventh with the lightweight fours.
Gautreau graduated from Syracuse with a bachelor's degree in physics in December 2005 and is currently pursuing a master's degree from UVa in exercise physiology.
