Eleven rowers from Princeton, representing three Tiger programs, will be competing at the U23 World Championships this week in Amsterdam.

The EAWRC and NCAA champion Princeton open varsity eight will be sending three of its rowers to compete in the W8+ championship. Both Kelly Pierce '12 and Heidi Robbins '13 will be competing for the U.S., while 2011 captain and Von Kienbusch recipient Lauren Wilkinson '11 will be rowing for Canada.

National Head Coach of the Year Lori Dauphiny will also be sending Gabby Cole '13, who will row for the U.S. in the W4-, and Nicole Bielawski '13, who will be competing for the U.S. in the W2x.

"It is exciting to see so many rowers from Princeton racing at the U23 Worlds," Dauphiny said. "They are a talented and hardworking group. Two of the women competing are sophomore walk-ons so they are relatively new to rowing. I imagine there will be some fierce racing."

The men's heavyweights will send four to Amsterdam, including captain elect Ian Silveira '12, who will compete for the U.S. in the M4x. Two Princeton rowers will compete in the 8+; Mike Evans '13 will be competing for Great Britain, while Tim Masters '14 is rowing for Australia. Graduate Blake Parsons '11 will race for Canada in the M4-; it is his third berth in the U23 World Championships, while both Silveira and Evans are making their second trip to the annual regatta. Evans earned a bronze medal with the British 8+ last year.

"I am very pleased to see so many Princeton rowers heading off to the U23s this year," heavyweight coach Greg Hughes said. "All of our squads had strong spring seasons and it is great to see our athletes take that success to the next level and earn a spot to race for their countries. I am looking forward to seeing how they all fair over in Amsterdam."

Two men's lightweights will compete as teammates for the U.S., as both Steve Cutler '12 and Tyler Nase '13 will race in the LM4-.
