CRISPINO ON ROWING AT UCONN: "After only two years here at UConn, I've had an experience of a lifetime being part of the rowing team. Not only have I found great appreciation for the sport of rowing, but I have also enjoyed becoming part of a hardworking and supportive team. The coaches helped to create an atmosphere that motivated me to continuously work to become a valued teammate. In such a short time I have greatly improved on my technique and I have built lasting friendships with my teammates. Overall, UConn rowing has been a rewarding experience.

The lessons that I have learned from the sport will be extremely valuable throughout my life and my career."
