Former Badger lightweight rower Dusty Mattison is in her eighth season with the Wisconsin coaching staff as the novice lightweight coach.
Mattison, the 2000-01 lightweight crew captain, coaches the novice lightweights for a seventh season after spending 2001-02 as a volunteer assistant with the team.
Mattison has been a part of the UW program nearly as along as the university had a lightwieght rowing program, and been a key cog in the Badgers' five national championships over the past six year. The program christened a new racing shell during the spring of 2009 in her honor.
The three-time Academic All-Big Ten rower helped the Badgers to their first No. 1 ranking during the 1998-99 season. The team went on to finish third in the IRA National Championship that year. In 2000-01, Darley helped the team capture its first Head of the Charles, San Diego Crew Classic and Eastern Sprints titles as the team's MVP. The team went on to place second at the IRA National Championship, its best finish up until that time
The St. Paul, Minn., native, earned her bachelor's degree in art history from the University of Wisconsin in December 2001.
