JACKSONVILLE, Fla.—The JU men’s rowing program has announced they have added 11 new members to their team for the upcoming 2013-14 season.
“I am very excited about the group we have coming in this year,” said JU men’s head coach Montia Rice. “Assistant coach Tom Dougherty and I have worked hard to find a group of guys that are not only talented but fit the mold of our program. This particular group will add strength and size to an already strong group of rowers. In addition we have added 3 coxswains that between the three of them have up to 12 years of experience. Needless to say we are excited and can’t wait to get started.”
