In rowing as in life, there are competitors and there are racers. The competitor works
hard and rows to his limit. The racer does not think of limits. Only the race.
-Jim Dietz, Rowing Coach, USCGA
"WE ARE COMMITTED TO EACH OTHER AS ROWERS AND AS TEAMMATES."
ROWING FOR MSU
It takes a unique person to be a member of the longest running club team at Murray State University. It takes a certain person to take on the responsibility of representing the first collegiate rowing team in the state of Kentucky. It takes a special man to be a member of the only men’s collegiate rowing program in the entire state of Kentucky. It takes a special woman to uphold the honor and tradition of wearing the white cap on the racecourse. It takes the best to be a part of the best.
Murray State Rowing is a student organization that exists to further the sport of rowing at Murray State University and the state of Kentucky. We are committed to the following principles:
We are committed rowers that seek to further
our ability and skill in rowing.
We are committed as rowers and students to expand our knowledge of the world and further our intellectual capacity. As university students, we will not compromise our main purpose of attending Murray State University.
We are committed to a winning tradition and achieving victory at all regattas. We will not accept anything less than first place.
We are committed to each other as rowers and teammates. On or off the water, we function as one unit, one boat, one team.
"ON OR OFF THE WATER, WE FUNCTION AS ONE UNIT, ONE BOAT, ONE TEAM."
