Chase is pursuing a major in cognitive neuroscience at Wash U in St. Louis. This past fall, Chase’s crew won a gold medal at the Head of the Oklahoma in OKC in the men’s collegiate eight. However, his crew did not stop there and rowed to a bronze medal at the Head of the Hooch (the second largest head race of the US racing season). Congratulations to Chase and his crew, we look forward to good things in the spring!
Hannah is pursuing an economics degree at OU. She rows bow seat of the OU 3rd varsity eight. Her successes this fall include a 4th place finish in the women’s collegiate eights at the Head of the Oklahoma. Her crew finished 3rd in the night sprints that evening. In addition, Hannah rowed to a 7th place finish in the Jayhawk Jamboree and a 3rd place in the sprints in that event. Way to go Hannah!
