“Rowing for Virginia took me from London to Boston to Tennessee, winning races with my best friends. Our national success was a product of not only how hard we worked, but also of how much the older guys looked out for the new guys. We had a sense of pride in our team that wasn’t matched anywhere else in the University because we took personal responsibility for our boat speed, our team financing, our reputation, and each other.”

—Nicholas Jablonski, ’02, ’04, Captain, United States Marine Corps
