**Heather Evans Biography**
I have been rowing with Albany Rowing Center for 14 years. I have raced in local and international regattas, including US Masters National Races, FISA, Head of the Charles, and Canadian Henley. I have significant experience coxing and bowing boats in races. My most challenging and rewarding coxing occurred at the Head of the Charles at the largest 2 day international regatta in the northeast - where I navigated the very curvy Charles River to help my women's coxed 4 into the top 10 with an automatic invitation for the following year. I now row recreationally in my own single.
**Lou Aiossa Biography**

I have rowed in the state championships, in 8's and as a crew won the maac conference all three years at the varsity level. In my senior year I finished my rowing career at the International Collegent Rowing association national championship regatta AKA the IRA finishing 14th in the country in a four. Following college I coached at the mid Hudson rowing club and then at Marist under the late Scott Sanford.
