Today, we would like to salute our 2020 Crew Senior, Theresa Rusch. Theresa, a native of Tonawanda, NY, will graduate from the D’Youville Nursing Program.
Coach Lauren Ciurzynski tabbed Theresa as a true leader for the program stating, “Theresa was a prime example of a Spartan and a rower. She brought the spirit of D’Youville to the team, her leadership was unlike any other and she brought a textbook example of rowing technique to the team. She always brought positivity and energy when we all needed it.”
In 2018, Rusch was named the program’s Most Valuable Player Award. Coach Ciurzynski also added “Theresa was a very collect rower, putting every bit of strength and energy into the boat with composure and poise. Her knowledge of rowing and organizational skills impacted the team tremendously.”
As a department, we want to wish Theresa the best of luck in her future endeavors and thank her for her dedication to the D'Youville Women's Crew Program and D'Youville Athletics.
