Our family seems to have a connection with rowing; or "Crew". Ron rowed for UCI, I was a coxswain, it's were we met. Cory found rowing on her own, in high school where she was on the team for 4 years, and was recruited by Cal to be a coxswain there, where she was on the team for 2 1/2 years. Jamie rowed for 4 years in high school, and was recruited by SDSU where she is ending her 2nd year on the team (NCAA DI). She's ending it on a great note I might add! She has made "Scholar-Athlete" for the second year and has just won a silver medal at WIRA (the Western Championships) in a 4, that she was Stroke seat in!
The title of this post is the saying on a popular T-shirt in the rowing set, because it is all you ever say when you are on Crew...you can't do anything outside Crew, because it takes up ALL your time. But it is a wonderful sport, that requires you to act as a team like no other, it demands amazing physical strength and finesse, and it is done on the water in beautiful places. You can see why we all seem to like it.
So, this is to celebrate Jamie, and all her incredible hard work, both physical and mental. We are so proud of you. Go AZTECS!

Jamie and her 4. Usually rowers are all very tall, but Jamie is good, so she can hold her own with the tall girls, while she looks like a coxswain.
