Rowing Club: From Nothing to Nationals

As a rower, Zach Ewell is used to hearing such encouragements as, “Pull your guts out!” It’s indicative of the grit that’s required in the sport. And it’s what he needed to compete for New Saint Andrews in the ACRA Rowing Nationals 2019 after being away from the oars for four years. Now he’s bringing the same toughness—along with four boats and rowing equipment—to the rowing club.
