VISENTIN ON ROWING AT UCONN: "Walking on to this team was the greatest decision that I have ever made. Before rowing at the University of Connecticut, I thought I knew what it was like to work hard, to have priorities in line and to create unbreakable bonds. What I knew was only scraping the surface. This team has taught me more about hard work in my three years here than I could have ever asked to learn in a lifetime. I have made friendships on this team that most people would only dream of having. This team has become my second family and I know that no matter how far we travel on our own separate paths, we will always find ways back to each other. I am so grateful to everyone who I have gotten the opportunity to work with during my three years here, who believed in me and helped me to push myself more than I ever thought possible. Without them, I never would have survived!"
