Meet the Crew: 2017-2018

Meet the Crew: 2017-2018

It’s been almost four months since Seattle University Men’s Rowing was last in action, but with the first scrimmage of the season planned for September 10th, Crew is back!

Returning Varsity members include Kyle Seeberger, Jay Gooding, and Ben Clarke. Making their Varsity debut this year will be Derek Heath, Bobby Murray, Wes McMillan, Marlon Basco, Paul Goo, and Ryan Thelin.

With Head Coach Nicole Martin at the helm, Men’s Crew is looking to defend their reputation as one of the premier Lightweight Varsity 4 Crews in the nation after taking fourth place at the 2017 ACRAs. Additionally, with success at the Covered Bridge Regatta, WIRAs, and the Windermere Cup, the Redhawks are looking to improve their standing in other events as well.

Recruitment for Matt Oclander’s Novice Team begins in earnest during welcome week, which runs from the 17th to the 23rd. During that time, rowers will help freshmen move into their dorms and run sign-up events around campus with the Women’s Crew team. As always, Men’s Crew will also be at the Seattle University Club Fair later in Fall Quarter. If students see a member of the Crew team, they are more than encouraged to ask questions, such as:

What is rowing like?

When are practices?

Does the Crew team have a dog? (Yes.)

No experience is needed for the novice team, and if you can’t wait until welcome week or the club fair, email club_crew@seattleu.edu to express your interest in rowing or to ask questions.

Go Hawks!
