East Lansing, Mich. - Former Michigan State rower Emily Regan '10 has earned a spot in the women's eight for the third and final stage of the 2013 Samsung World Rowing Cup series. This stage begins on Friday, July 11 in Lucerne, Switzerland. The women's eight is among 14 United States crews competing.
More than 650 athletes from 43 countries will compete in this prestigious event.
"I continue to be so proud of Emily and what she has accomplished thus far," said MSU head coach Matt Weise, who brought Regan into the Spartan program as a walk-on and tutored her throughout her four-year career. "Emily has worked incredibly hard, and its fantastic to see her efforts be rewarded. I wish her, as well as the entire US team, the best of luck in Lucerne."
Regan, who was the 2010 Big Ten Rower of the Year, has been in residency with US Rowing since her graduation. Regan won three Big Ten gold medals and two Big Ten team titles in her time in Green and White. In the summer of 2010, Regan won a gold medal at the Under-23 Rowing World Championships in Belarus, just months after her graduation from Michigan State. In 2011, she won a gold medal in the four at the World Rowing Championship, and also at the Senior World Championship trials.
Regan trains with US Rowing out of its facility in Princeton, N.J.
