Coaching Introduction – Sarah Zhou

1 Comment

Hello all,

My name is Sarah and I look forward to joining Coaches Mike, Peter and Alessandra. I am currently in my 3rd year of the Bachelor of Health Sciences (Biomedical Specialization) program at McMaster.

Prior to University, I played soccer at a provincial level, but I was forced to retire due to a recurring knee injury. Fortunately, as I was looking for a new activity, I was introduced to rowing through the McMaster Novice program. Currently, I am a lightweight on the McMaster Varsity Rowing Team. I also rowed for Leander Boat Club over the summer, where my crew and I placed bronze in the lightweight 4- at ROWONTARIO Championships.

Although I have previously coached two soccer teams, this will be my first experience with coaching rowing. I hope to bring my enthusiasm and passion for sports to the benefit of the team while learning tons from the experienced coaches.

Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions about rowing, schoolwork, University or life in general!
