Rowing Adds Assistant Coach
Louisville Rowing added Callie McGowan to the coaching staff. McGowan is plenty familiar with the program and city, having been on the team as a student-athlete and just graduated in the spring of 2018.
After graduating with a bachelors degree from Louisville, McGowan went to become a graduate assistant the last two years. She recently completed her masters in athletic leadership.
"As a former rower, I am honored to be able to come back and continue to push this team to new levels both in our conference and on the national stage," said McGowan. "I believe Derek and the other coaches have a clear vision for this team. I am very thankful for this incredible opportunity and am looking forward to getting this season started."
The rowing season often begins with the Red and Black Regatta as a scrimmage. They typically have a few events in October and November before breaking for winter time.
The back half of the season picks up in March and runs through May, when the ACC Championships take place.
Unlike most sports, rowing is a socially distanced sport between opponents and is contact-less. Assuming all teams are following the proper procedures and protocol then a rowing season should be one of the safest sports to have, along with cross country, track and field, and tennis. It would be difficult to separate the rowers in one boat, obviously, but that can't be changed.
Sadly, Louisville doesn't host home events due to the currents in the Ohio River, but we can still cover away events!
