MIDDLETOWN, Conn. – Assistant coach Trevor Michelson '13 of Wesleyan University men's crew, as well as former tri-captain Mike Queenan '17, recently helped guide the Vesper Boat Club Lightweight Men to seven national titles at the 2017 USRowing Club National Championships in Ohio.
Michelson is the Vesper Lightweight Men's Head Coach during their summer program. In his first head coaching assignment, Michelson recruited top collegiate athletes from around the country to produce one of the best set of results ever seen by one club at the national regatta.
The Vesper Lightweights won the intermediate light 2x, 2-, 4+, 4x, 8+, as well as the senior/elite light 4+ and 8+. Queenan himself captured four gold medals as a member of the intermediate lightweight 2-, 4+, 8+ and the senior elite lightweight 8+.
With the seven victories, Vesper won the overall and men's points trophies at Nationals.
