Q&A With Stuart Maeder
I picked Dartmouth because to me, it has the perfect balance between academics and athletics. I also love the area of New Hampshire and plan on enjoying all of the winters on the Dartmouth Skiway.
How long have you been rowing and what got you interested?
I have been rowing since my freshman year of high school. I started rowing mostly because my cousins who rowed told me that i had all the needed physiological characteristics of a good rower.
Have you won any awards?
I won 1st place for the 17y.o. 2k at the 2011 Mid Atlantic Erg Sprints. I also attended the 2011 US Junior National Team's Selection camp where i was placed at stroke seat for the US 4+ at Junior Worlds.
In the beginning of high school I was really interested in going to Dartmouth as a soccer player but ended up switching sports to rowing in recent years. I actually didn't know that Dartmouth had a crew team until one day i checked the athletic site and then realized that i could row for Dartmouth rather than play soccer for them.
