San Diego Crew Classic
2012 (Freshman): Coxed the junior varsity eight that took third at the NCAA Championships, won the Pac-12 Championship and beat Stanford and Washington.
Personal: Qualified the varsity 8+ for the Southwest Regional Championships in the club's first year of existence with the Upper Natoma Rowing Club ... sister, Larissa, rowed at Loyola Marymount ... parents are Lewis and Kathleen Meltz ... has three sisters ... undeclared major, but plans on being an elementary school teacher.
The best part about being on Cal crew is: Everyone on the team pushes each other to be the best that they can be. you are always challenged as well as encouraged.
I chose Cal because: I wanted to go to a school where I would be challenged academically and athletically. cal is the perfect combination.
