Meet Wes: Captain and President Men's Rowing
Wes joined the rowing team not expecting much to come of it. Instead, rowing became the center-point of his college career as he reached for leadership opportunities. He has led his team in becoming top in the nation and earning international acclaim.
The most memorable moment of being on the team was definitely this past summer when we traveled to England to race for the University of Michigan in the Henley Royal Regatta, which is one of the most prestigious regattas in the world, every year. So traveling there, we were there for two weeks, we were training there for a little while and then we got to race at a royal event. So people are all dressed up to the nines kind of thing, the royal family shows up… And being able to do something like that, to me, exemplifies being part of an organization at U of M. For me, traveling to England and getting to race there was probably one of the pinnacles of my rowing career here on campus.
