2016 Outlook
"This year's team has experienced several learning and break through moments. Especially during the winter season. Our racing schedule allows us to see our main competition several times before IRA's which means we can keep on accessing and learning. The team recognizes the history of Wisconsin Lightweight Rowing and are committed to making each other and their alumni proud."
-Head Coach Dusty Mattison

2016 Outlook
"Last year, I wrote for the Row2k preview these words: 'The bodies are here now; this is an extremely lanky team which is our model. While rowing is a team sport, it is also profoundly individual. For us to be successful in 2015, a few of those individuals need to rise and lead. The story of this season hinges upon that factor.' We were ‘unhinged’ all season long in 2015 and for 2016 to be successful by our standards (winning), that 2015 quote and the indispensable conditions for our success must be met."

2016 Outlook
"This year's team is quintessential Wisco - tough, fun, close knit and really hard working. Our racing schedule is pretty aggressive so we're looking forward to getting to the line (start and finish) and seeing what it all looks like for real. Pretty run-of-the-mill response to the question... but I believe we are more than a run-of-the mill team. Can't wait to watch it happen! GO BADGERS!"
