California: 2012 (Freshman): Rowed on Cal's freshman eight that beat Stanford.

Personal: Placed at the Midwest regionals and qualifed for nationals from 2008-11 while rowing for Lincoln Park Juniors ... lists snowboarding and going to music festivals as hobbies ... parents are Richard Oliver and Debi Amzal ... grandfather played minor league baseball with the Hollywood Stars ... undeclared major, but plans to go to grad school and work in psychological research ... born in Denton, Texas, but went to Lincoln Park High School in Chicago.

The best part aobut being on Cal crew is: Being part of something great. The while team inspires each other to be the best and grow everyday.

I chose Cal because: I knew Cal would push me, not just as an athlete and a student, but as a person.
