Coaching Changes at MIT

MIT novice lightweight coach Aaron Benson has moved over to the heavyweight team and will coach the heavy novices this year. Although coaching "differently weighted" women now, Coach Benson has been an enthusiastic supporter of lightweight women's rowing and I have no doubt he will continue to be a supporter in his new role.

Coach Benson has been replaced by Philadelphia and Vesper Boat Club fixture Claire Kostrzewski. Coach K (that's inevitable, isn't it?) rowed at Georgetown and has been competing on the elite lightweight circuit. She'll be a great addition to the MIT staff.
