HYPOTHETICAL

Who would you like to trade places with for a day?   Luke Bryan, I would love to perform at a concert and I would never be able to dance like that ever again!

AS A BLUE HEN

Any superstitions?   When we have testing days at practice, I have to wear the same outfit and a shirt with a bible verse on the back. At races I have to wear my hair the same way and use the same book-bag every time.

What do you and your team do to get students to go to your game?   Beg (haha)... our races are far because we need a river so it can be tricky to get fans out there, but we always have a large crowd of family and close friends so I can't complain!

What was the best advice ever given to you?   During my freshmen year in high school, my coach told me to stop playing soccer and row. Choosing to row will always be one of the best decisions I've made in my life.
