Michigan State alumna Emily Regan has earned a spot in the United States four that is headed to the 2014 FISA World Rowing championships in Amsterdam, as announced by US Rowing on Monday. Eighty athletes have been named to the US contingent, with the athletes in four more boats to be finalized in the coming days.
Michigan State rowing coach Matt Weise has announced the addition of Helen Tilghman to the Spartan staff as an assistant coach. Tilghman comes to East Lansing after a year each at Dayton and Seattle, and rowed collegiately at Washington (2008-12).

MSU's varsity four, seeded fourth, took third place to earn a medal, while the fifth-seeded varsity eight met its seed.
