Today we would have been defending our national title at the ACRA National Champs in Gainesville, GA and it would’ve been our last day of spring season 2020. We’re gutted that we didn’t get a shot to get the trophy again but the departing seniors are excited to see what the future holds for SU Men’s Crew! We know you’ll make us proud! @sumenscrew @nicholem_m @_bobbymurray @liamtheconnor @lucybrezy #rowsu #sumenscrew Thank you @heath_derek for this awesome video!

After 9 (very short ) years of rowing I’m retiring from competition. From Lake Union Crew, to Pocock Rowing Center, to Seattle Area Rowing Association and Seattle University I will forever be grateful for the incredible coaches/mentors I’ve had and the awe-inspiring teammates/competitors I’m proud to call family. Rowing is a sport that creates some of the best leaders, followers and most well-rounded people the world has to offer. People who will stand up for what they believe in and fly their values flag.People who know that they can always improve; be it in their personal, professional or athletic lives. Through the thousands upon thousands of hours I’ve spent in training and in competition one thing is certain; I’ll miss the people the most. Thank you all for everything. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you ever need anything. Stay healthy. I hope to see you all soon. 🤍

🥈2nd place in the Collegiate Category of the Chelanman Olympic Distance Triathlon! 5th in age group (20-24 ), 16th overall 👍 Beat athletes from UW, WSU, SPU, Gonzaga - - Not the race I wanted after my watch stopped recording 11 sec into the swim which left me fumbling to get it to work on the bike. Had a hard time finding my rhythm on the run leaving me with bad cramps around mile 4 forcing me to walk for a couple minutes. Still managed a 43min 10k run with all the walking so still did okay 👌 Missed a qualifying spot for Age Group Nationals by 13min; got my work cut out for me. #chelanman2019 #chelanman #triathlon #swimbikerun #bike #tt #seattleu #sumenscrew #RowSU

Anti-government protests tonight against austerity measures imposed as a condition for economic bailout packages in Greece. The protests mark the 45th anniversary of the 1973 Athens Polytechnic uprising that helped topple the military junta. Police fired teargas and threw stun grenades into the crowd to disperse protestors hurling rocks and petrol bombs at them. - - - - - #athensprotest #november17 #athensgreece

Happy adventures 😊 Serious thought: “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.” -Desmond Tutu pc: @zoee_chapman Happy thought: Looking forward to many more adventures with you @zoee_chapman 🍯☀️ - - - #love 💕 #activism #pnw #trees #methowvalley #environment #victim #oppression #beactive #dontbeneutral #begood
