At the suggestion of her grandparents, who started Northern Michigan University Crew, Allyson began rowing her freshman year at Grand Valley State University (GVSU). Her career there culminated in winning the women's pair event at ACRA in the spring of 2018. After graduating, Allyson joined Westerville Crew to coach under Allison Sobiech, who first taught her how to row at GVSU.

Aly Day

Novice Women's Head Coach

After three years of rowing for Westerville Crew, Ben continued on to row for the Ohio State Crew for three years, making the top varsity 8+ each year. His college rowing career was cut short by a shoulder injury, so he utilized his newfound free time to assist Coach Kyle Stanley in the Spring of 2019 before taking on the Men's Novice Coach role in September 2019.

After a long break from her college rowing years, Becky joined Westerville Crew in 2013. She started coaching as an assistant to the novice men’s and women’s teams. She continues to help the head coaches, providing help where needed. She is also a masters rower and a USRowing referee.
