UB Rowing Athlete of the Week Allison Virgo

Name: Allison Virgo

Major: Electrical engineering

Walk on

Started rowing in Fall 2019

I started rowing out of curiosity and stayed because the team was great and the sport made me feel fulfilled.

My favorite memory is when I had to fill in on the varsity eight boat. It felt stable and powerful.

I learned about how I need to mentally break down larger challenges through rowing.

My favorite thing about rowing is the feeling of being on the water when the sun comes up, and being able to continue through the day feeling accomplished.
