MADISON, Wis. - Both the Badger women's and lightweight rowing teams have enjoyed a wealth of team success over the years - now both teams will be represented by individual athletes later this month in the 2012 U-23 World Rowing Championships in Trakai, Lithuania.
Samantha Brecht and Kendall Schmidt earned spots on the U23 U.S. team after each student-athlete's camp boat was selected to compete at the U-23 Championships by the national team coaches.
Brecht will represent the Badgers in the women's lightweight quad at the World Rowing Championships, while Schmidt (openweight squad) will stroke the boat for the women's 8.
The U-23 World Rowing Championships are scheduled to begin on July 11 in Trakai, Lithuania.
