She said that her journey has been filled with lots of hard work, and she's excited for the next step. 

"When I first started as a freshman I had no idea that I'd be quitting basketball to row for three more years, and I really had no idea that I'd be rowing in college. I thought it would just be a high school thing but once I got to campus I felt like I was already home and the team was super welcoming and excited to have me there," said Schaertl.
