Q & A with John Cresap

Why Dartmouth?
I loved the location, beautiful scenery, perfect river, awesome college town. But the best part was that all the guys on the team, and everyone I met whenever I visited the campus were awesome people and very nice and supportive. 

How long have you been rowing and what interested you about rowing?
I started rowing in the spring of my junior year because I was tall and looking for a way to stay in shape for my senior soccer season.

Have you won any awards?
I rowed in the second boat (we rowed 4s at Belmont Hill) for two years, during which I never lost a race. I won the Wayland-Weston Invitational and the NEIRA championships both years

Something interesting about yourself?
I can do a rubik's cube in under 2 minutes.
