What Wisconsin Rowing means to you: Working hard. As a rower at Wisconsin, I'm up early to row every morning, no matter what, no excuses. Cold or snowy weather, tired or not feeling well, it doesn't matter. My teammates are counting on me. That is the level of discipline and commitment you have to live by.
