Steve Somosky: Head Coach Boys JV/Varsity
After many years as a “Crew Mom” and FOGRI board member, Wendy made the leap to learn to row at Riverfront Recapture, and immediately got hooked. A few years into rowing with the Riverfront Rec. team, she moved on to the Master’s Women's Racing team, primarily competing in 8’s and 4's. In 2017, her 4+ won 2nd place at the USRowing Northeast/Mid-Atlantic Masters Regional Championships in Lowell, MA. She went on to compete at the USRowing Masters National Championships in Oak Ridge, TN, where the Riverfront Recapture Racing team won the overall points award. Wendy is super excited to be working with both the boys and girls crew teams as a land coach. She brings plenty of enthusiasm, and a love of rowing (and - believe it or not - erging!) to the GHS rowing program.
