Alumni - Osprey Oars Graduates

Corey Evans Evans, Corey - 2006
Sarasota Military Academy

Corey rowed for four years and distinguished himself in both sculling and sweeps. In his junior year he rowed in the bow of the quad that placed 5th in the 2005 US Rowing Youth Nationals and in 2006 US Rowing Nationals stroked the Lightweight Four that placed 9th. The 2006 experience was notable for the closeness of the competition with the top ten boats all finishing within 11.5 seconds of each other. Corey's boat, although finishing 9th, was less than 5 seconds behind the gold medal winner and less than 0.15 seconds behind the bronze medal winner.

Carlos Graterol Graterol, Carlos - 2006
Riverview High School

When Carlos first came out for crew, he was very interested in ROTC but soon found in his words, "The physical demands of crew turned me into one of the fittest ROTC cadets." He devoted himself to crew and enjoyed the experience of taxing himself to his own personal limits.

Chase Hagaman Hagaman, Chase - 2006
Home Schooling

Chase came out for rowing in the summer of 2005 and overcame heavy odds as a senior novice to lead the quad as the stroke in the 2006 National Championships to a 5th place finish. A tremendous athlete who was a former wrestler before moving to Florida in his senior year, he picked up the fundamentals of rowing quickly. He was accepted to several colleges with strong rowing programs but has decided to continue to reside in Sarasota and work closely with his church while attending Manatee Community College. He expects later to transfer to a northern university where he will pick up where he left off with us and compete as a rower. He will also be assisting us as a coach of the novices in the 2006-07 season.
