GAUGER ON ROWING AT UCONN: "Four years ago, I was a freshman walking around campus when a complete stranger asked me to try out for the UConn women's rowing team. Now looking back on that moment, I realize that it has defined my entire college career. Rowing is not at all what I had thought it would be at first. It's been more. I've pushed myself both mentally and physically harder than I ever have before in my life. I've done things that I've never thought I could do. Thinking back on this now, I'm amazed. And of course, there are the bonds that I have made with my teammates. Bonds that I know will stand the tests of time because of what we have endured together. Thank you UConn rowing for making me a better person than I was four years ago. Thank you for pushing me every day to strive to be the best person I can be on the water, in the classroom, and in life itself."
