This Staff Saturday is brought to you by Dylan Lukas, TRYR Novice Boys Coach & Head Coach of Mid Morning Masters.
How did you get into rowing and what is your background in the sport?
🎤 "My mom made me go to a two week rowing summer camp before 9th grade and after it was finished I knew I was going to stay with this sport.
I competed 4 years after that camp with Fox chapel crew and did a summer with steel city. During that time I qualified for SRAA nationals twice. Once in a JV mens 4+ And the next year I competed in the Varsity Mens 2x earning a second place medal. I still compete, typically racing in the mens open single because I still love the intensity and the training that goes with it.
My coaching background started back in the fall of 2017 until winter of 2018. I continued coaching spring of 2021."
