Pause at the Release: Winter Training Recap

As we gear up for our spring season, starting with a scrimmage against KU this weekend, we asked senior and co-captain, Missy Urquhart to recap on winter traing:

"As we have moved indoors for winter training, it is a time to work hard as a team and push each other to get faster. Everyday we have been pushing our bodies to the limit with our end goals in mind--winning the American Conference Championship and making the NCAA Championship. I am so proud of this team and the support we show each other in and out of the erg room.

This winter training we have made huge strides as a team by focusing not only on our erging and cross training, but also on health and schoolwork. We are stronger and healthier than ever. Being indoors, has given us more time to get ahead on our schoolwork before we hit the ground running with races. We have done everything possible to prepare for our upcoming season. Get ready to see us do big things!"
