LIKAR ON ROWING AT UCONN: "With each stroke, my passion and love for rowing grows stronger. Between coaches and teammates, UConn rowing has given me a family away from home. I am blessed to wake up every morning with these people at my side, all of whom share the same drive, passion and commitment that I do. With each drop of sweat, stroke, stride, squat, press, sled pull and tire flip, I know we are all working toward the same goal--to row and win as one."
