MEET ANGIE SIEVERS
Angie Sievers learned to row at Everett Rowing Association where she accumulated a number of high school regional championships and a silver and gold for ERAs first trip to junior nationals. That summer she competed on the U. S. Junior National Team in the 4- and the 8+. She rowed one year at Washington State and finished her undergrad in Education in 1995.
Angie began her career teaching and coaching in Lake Stevens. In her second year, she began training for the U.S. National Team and was invited to live at the ARCO Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, CA. She then earned a seat on two lightweight national teams and won the gold in 1999 rowing the 4x-. Angie finished her National Team career nearly missing the Olympic Team with a 2nd place finish in the lightweight 2x at the 2000 Olympic trials.
There is nothing more satisfying to Angie than to nourish others interest in rowing, revealing the thrill of racing, and the dedication it requires to prepare well for competition...in the best way possible, as a team.
MEET TOM HULL
Rowing has been part of Tom’s family for four generations. He first learned to row in a wherry on Lake Washington at age 12, and he subsequently competed for Lakeside School and then Dartmouth College, where he stroked the varsity eight. Tom stroked the straight four on the U.S. Olympic Team in 1980, the year the U.S. boycotted the Moscow Olympics due to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Thirty-eight years later, he and his 1980 teammates continue to race together in several major masters regattas each year. Tom is a is longtime supporter of Northwest rowing and has served as president of the George Pocock Rowing Foundation. He retired from the technology industry in 2015 and recently completed a term as Board Chair of the YMCA of Greater Seattle.
