Nick’s rowing career began in the summer of 2012 when he joined several high school classmates at the Treasure Coast Rowing Club. Despite enjoying a variety of sports to that point growing up, he discovered something that challenged athletes beyond anything he had experienced. He spent his junior year of high school as a novice, learning the basic techniques of the sport. After spending the fall of his senior year running cross-country and returning to the sport in the spring, he decided that rowing was his passion and something that he wanted to compete in beyond high school.
Nick found the opportunity to pursue rowing further by joining Florida Crew in the fall of his freshman year at UF. He moved immediately to varsity and made the V8 for his first race with the team at the Head of the Hooch that year. He continued to compete in both the V8 and LWT4 throughout his time with Florida Crew, making the V8 for all but one race of his collegiate career. His junior year the LWT4 won the Head of the Hooch and placed 3rd at the ACRA Championships. His senior year with Florida Crew saw continued success, winning the Head of the Hooch in the Club V8 event.
Following the completion of his four years of rowing eligibility, Nick wanted to continue to be involved with the team during his final semester at UF. He had the privilege to coach the UF novice men’s team in fall of 2018 with the team’s top boat earning 2nd at the Head of the Hooch in the club novice eight. Upon returning to the Stuart area following graduation, Nick wanted to continue to be involved with the sport. He looks forward to coaching the TCRC middle school team and sharing his passion for the sport with them.
