Charlottesville, VA - Female students at the University of Virginia who have an interest in competing for the varsity rowing team are invited to an informational meeting Sunday, Sept. 2 at 5 p.m. in Gilmer Hall. Members of the Cavalier coaching staff will discuss opportunities to compete as part of one of the nation's elite programs that has a long-standing tradition of developing rowers with little or no experience into elite level athletes. Last year Virginia was the runner-up at the NCAA Championships and the Cavaliers' Varsity Four won the national title.
"Even if you have no experience with the sport, this is a great opportunity for students who are interested in competing for one of UVa's athletic programs," said head coach Kevin Sauer. "We will provide an overview of our program and the sport and answer any questions."
Virginia has a strong tradition of developing rowers into elite collegiate athletes. Several have rowed on national champion teams at UVa and gone on to row at the international level. One of the greatest examples of that is Lindsay Shoop. Shoop started rowing her third year at Virginia and went on to compete in the 2005 World Championships and now holds a seat in the US National Team 8+. Margaret Matia started rowing in her second year as an undergraduate and competed in this year's Pan American Games, winning two medals.
"We have found that individuals who have competed in other sports in high school still have a competitive drive and have found rowing a great outlet," Sauer said. "If you want to compete for a very good program and start a sport you can continue to enjoy for many years, we encourage you to join us at our informational meeting."
