DomToss.jpgCongratulations to Dominic Santora on his selection as the coxswain for the United States U23 national team. After almost a month of grueling practices and competition, Dominic emerged as the team's top choice for the 9th seat. Next week, Dominic and his eight teammates will represent the United States in Plovdiv, Bulgaria at the 2017 World Rowing Under 23 Championships July 19-22.

Dom coxed for many WRRA programs -- Learn to Row, Summer Rowing League, Intermediate, and Masters -- as a student at Saint Ignatius High School (’14) and during the summers while at Syracuse University (’18). In 2016, he saw the Masters Men’s 8+ to gold at the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta in Ontario, Canada. In June, he was at the helm for Syracuse's 8th place finish at the 2017 IRA (Intercollegiate Rowing Association) Championship Regatta.

A truly great coxswain inspires our best rowing, and WRRA invites you to acknowledge this tremendous accomplishment by one of our own. The U23 team must raise $50,000 to compete on the international stage. Please consider supporting Dominic by clicking HERE to make a tax-deductible donation on the U23 team's RallyMe page.
