Getting in touch with Michigan Crew Alumni
Rowing at Michigan
My 3 years rowing for the University of Michigan Rowing Team (1990-92) were some of the best times of my life. I met great friends and we pushed ourselves to do amazing things. I have a bunch of great memories. I even met my wife.
The rowing team started in 1976 as a small club sport. Our team has progressed over the last 30 years to be a very strong team.
The Women’s team has become Varsity, so they are extremely well funded now. The Men’s team is still a Club sport…relying primarily on dues and fundraising to pay coaches salaries, buy expensive equipment, etc…
Me as an Officer
I poured time and energy into rowing more than I did my classes for a few years. I was VP, in charge of fundraising, one year. I helped start the Rent-a-Rower fundraiser…we’d do just about any yardwork, chore, etc… for $10 an hour.
My last year I was President of the team as well.
After 3 years of rowing, and putting so much of myself into the team, I decided I needed to actually graduate, so I didn’t row my senior (5th) year and took a very heavy class load.
Now, I am again trying to help the team reconnect with some of the Alumni that they have lost track of. I am now in search of all of the class of 1992…
