Men's Rowing To Hold Tryouts Next Week
The nationally-ranked Oregon State men's rowing team will hold tryouts each day next week, Nov. 3-7, at 4 p.m. at the OSU crew docks on the Willamette River.
Any male that is a current OSU undergraduate student is invited to try out. Please note that the average height of the men in the varsity boat exceeds 6-foot-2.
The crew docks are located on the East shore of the Willamette River near Trysting Tree Golf Club, just across the Van Buren Street Bridge off of Highway 34.
There is no prior rowing experience required; approximately 90 percent of the men's team, which finished ninth at last year's Intercollegiate Rowing Association National Championships, had no rowing experience before joining the program.
Former OSU rowers have earned seats in United States National Team or Olympic Team boats 20 times, the most recent of which is 2001 graduate Joey Hansen, who is a three-time member of the national team eight.
