The Stetson University rowing team started practice this week with about 45 members and are excited to get the new season underway. Team coaches Mark Wilson and James Dietz are really excited about the energy on the squad with the returning and new members.
“We have a lot of nice athletes on the team and I am very excited for the upcoming conditioning period and to see the team on the water!” Wilson said.
The new team has members from Vermont, to Arizona, from Florida to Texas and many states in-between. The Hatters are looking forward to the first year in the MAAC as a rowing conference member and will be racing this spring in the conference championships.
The fall season will include races in Jacksonville, Fla., Chattanooga, Tenn., and a new home regatta on Homecoming weekend called the Fall Hatter Rowing Rendezvous. Please plan on attending as a volunteer or as a team supporter. For ways to volunteer please contact Head Coach Mark Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
