Justin Manning brings over a decade of rowing and coaching experience to the Hoya coaching staff. In his first year at Georgetown, his 2005-06 crew charged its way into the finals of the Eastern Sprints for the first time, signaling a new era of freshman lightweight rowing here in our nation's capital.
Prior to joining the Georgetown staff, Manning coached for two storied high school teams in the DC area. As head lightweight coach at Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, Virginia, he led his 2004-05 varsity to an undefeated regular season. That crew went on to take home a State Championship, a Silver Medal at the prestigious Stotesbury Regatta in Philadelphia, and the 2005 National Championship.
From 1999-2004, Manning served as an assistant coach at Thomas Jefferson High School in Annandale, VA. He gained experience at all levels within this championship program, guiding numerous crews to medals at the state and regional level. A 1999 graduate of the University of Virginia, Manning earned a B.A. in Business while rowing for all four years.
