Kreek, Schroeder Lead Stanford at World Rowing Championships

Aug. 21, 2006

Adam Kreek and Jamie Schroeder will represent Stanford Rowing at the 2006 World Rowing Championships in Dorney, England. Kreek will be in the five seat for the Canadian National team eight while Schroeder will be representing the United States in the heavyweight single scull. This competition marks a return to England for Schroeder who was a member of the Oxford University eight that trounced Cambridge in this past springs boat race. Kreek led the Cardinal Varsity eight to their finest season in school history which included victories over Cal, Washington, Yale, Penn, Harvard, and Oregon St.

Kreek will complete his degree this year at Stanford while Schroeder will continue his studies at Christ Church College at Oxford University in England. Both men have inspired the entire Stanford rowing community with their academic and athletic careers. This is Adam's fourth World Rowing Championships and Jamie's third, his first in the single. The 2006 event will be an early gauge as to what teams are setting themselves up for medals at the 2008 Olympics.

Notes: Jamie's brother Chip was part of the Henley Royal Regatta semi-final crew from Andover that competed so well in the Princess Elizabeth Cup that was eventually won by St. Ignatius of San Francisco.
