Cougar rowing announces incoming class
Washington State rowing will welcome its largest class in program history as 17 women have committed to join the Cougars in fall 2019, head coach Jane LaRiviere announced Tuesday.
“I’m extremely excited about the class of incoming Cougars we have assembled,” LaRiviere said. “This is the largest group of newcomers and they are all awesome people, and together they will address needs at all levels. We have a mixture of young women that I think can contribute to our top end speed in their first year, women that can fill gaps in our NCAA boats, and women that with a little more development will be real assets for years to come. Our coaching staff of Karl Huhta, Brandon Campbell, and Dave Kempsell worked very hard to recruit and bring this group together, and they did a great job. I can’t wait to have these young women all here in August and to get them going.”
