Stewards’ Letter

Friends,

It seems gratuitous to fill this space with words when just two will do. THANK YOU!

Thank you to those of you who support the program year over year; to those of you who are first time donors; and to those of you who have come back to the program after some time off. Your generosity set a new standard of sup-port.

In concert, the student-athletes and coaches took us on a remarkable ride this season. The women finished with an unprecedented sweep of the NCAA Championships and the men reclaimed the Ten Eyck Championship Trophy at IRAs. Winning the men’s and women’s Pac-12 titles together for the first time since 1997 is the result of hard work and a full team commitment. It is also a reflection of the tradition at Washington and a community that believes in these athletes and their potential as students on and off the water.

Finally, thank you and congratulations to our talented and dedicated coaches, Yaz and Michael, for being named Pac 12 Coaches of the Year. Yaz was also named Coach of the Year by the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association after her first season at Washington. We are grateful for Michael’s and Yaz’s dedi-cation to reinvigorating the culture down at the Shellhouse.

Thank you to everyone in the Washington Rowing Family, we do not do this alone.

Go Dawgs!
