ON THE COACHING STAFF: “Coach Conley puts strong emphasis on making the team better and faster. He demands an intense work ethic and inspires people to work their hardest to achieve their personal goals, as well as the team’s goals. I believe he will make Lehigh Crew a well-known entity in the rowing community. Coach Moorehead is a hard worker and practiced motivational speaker. He can get a team excited to win races and finish ahead of the other boats. He has been with the team for a long time, each year improving his coaching, and has the respect and dedication of the team.”
