MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin rowing is looking for students interested in rowing for the Badgers and will host an open house for all prospective rowers Aug. 31 to Sept. 2 at the Porter Boathouse.
Wisconsin students interested in competing as a Badger in a nationally-ranked program and becoming a Division I student-athlete in the oldest intercollegiate sport in the country should attend one of the open houses.
The open houses will be at 3:30 Wednesday-Friday and students interested in learning more about Wisconsin rowing are encouraged to attend one of the three sessions. Coaches are looking for athletes and there is no rowing experience necessary, and many of the athletes in Wisconsin's storied history had no previous rowing experience.
At the open house, students will have the opportunity to learn more about the sport, talk to the coaches and current rowers and tour the state-of-the-art boathouse, built in 2005.
For more information about joining Wisconsin's oldest varsity sport, perspective members should contact coach Megan Cooke Carcagno at MC2@athletics.wisc.edu or coach Simon Carcagno at SGC@athletics.wisc.edu.
