Unfortunately, our community has lost another dear member. Niels Legallet, who rowed from 1985-86, passed away on December 10th at the age of 47. Part of the first lightweight 8+ in í85, Niels and his teammates sparked a successful lightweight program for UCD up until 2004. Below is his obituary:

What a day of racing at Sacramento State Aquatic Center! We raced three boats in a Men's Open 4+ event, one eight in a Men's Open 8+, and three Novice eights! Our Varsity 4+ came first in the Men's Open 4+ category hitting 18:08 min for a 5k race. And, of coarse, our novices had a great first time racing! Let's go, Aggies!

About UC Davis Men's Rowing

UC Davis Men's Crew is a member of the Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association (WIRA) and competes both regionally and nationally. The team has distinguished itself as a perennial powerhouse in the WIRA conference, with numerous WIRA medals in all the major boat categories. Additionally, the team has grown more of a national presence, with appearances at Head of the Charles in Boston, IRA national championships in New Jersey, ECACs and ACRA club national championships in Oklahoma.

The men's crew is a club (non-funded) sport, and the majority of the oarsmen are walk-on, with no prior rowing experience before joining the team.

The team operates via a combination of limited support from the university, alumni and parent donations, and athlete dues/fundraising. Athletes pay dues on a quarterly basis, plus fundraiser's throughout the year. A council consisting of team-elected athletes runs the team, making decisions ranging from hiring coaches to hammering out the annual budget.
