WHY LEHIGH? “I chose Lehigh because I wanted a relatively small school with a pretty campus. I wanted a school that would challenge me and as soon as I set foot on the campus, I fell in love with it.”
ON THE COACHING STAFF: “I believe that Coach Conley is a great new addition to the Lehigh rowing program. He has brought so much excitement and has so many great ideas to improve the program.
