WASHINGTON – Georgetown men’s crew rising junior Graham Miller (Greenwich, Conn./Brunswick) has been invited to the selection camp for the U23 National Team. Hosted by the California Rowing Club in Oakland, Calif., the camp will work to select the men’s eight and four crews that will compete at the World Rowing Under 23 Championships, July 23-27, in Varese, Italy.
"I was very excited to hear that I was invited to the selection camp,” Miller said. "The invitees are some of the best young rowing athletes in the United States. It is a real honor to be considered among that group. I plan on giving it my all at the camp and expect to learn much from the experience."
The camp, which is coached by Cornell Assistant Coach Matt Smith and Wyatt Allen of the California Rowing Club, began with a practice on Monday morning. The time in Oakland will be spent selecting the fastest combinations of athletes for the camp boats (eight and four). Camp boat selection may continue until July 6, although it can be finalized prior to that date.
The camp will move to Princeton, N.J. on July 12-18 to train alongside the U.S. Senior Team eight and four boats.
Miller spent most of his sophomore season rowing in the varsity eight boat. In the final event of the year, he rowed in the third seat of the varsity four, advancing to the grand final of the Interscholastic Rowing Association's (IRA) National Championships where the Hoyas took fifth-place overall.
