BUFFALO, NY -- The University at Buffalo women's rowing team added a pair of rowers during the National Letter of Intent signing period as announced by first year head coach Sandy Calfo.
Both signees hail from the state of New York and have decorated backgrounds in rowing.
Caeleigh Heavey will join the Bulls next fall as a coxswain, a position she currently holds at Our Lady of Lourdes High School in Poughkeepsie, NY. She will bring a great deal of experience to the UB program, already knowing how to compete and excel at high levels of competition. Heavey has guided boats in US Scholastic Nationals and the Stotesbury Regatta. She is also a member of her high school swim team.
"Her personality along with her abilities in the boat have made her a true asset and a pleasure to work with. She is very competitive, brings the best out of any crew she is with and loves to win," remarked high school coach Erik Haight.
Mary Agarwala from Jamestown, NY has signed to compete as a rower for the Bulls. Agarwala rows for Chautauqua Lake Rowing Association and has been named "Most Valuable Rower" two years in a row. She attends Southwestern Senior High School where she is a member of the National Honor Society.
"We are all very proud of Mary's success. She is a great kid and a very hard worker with a great attitude. She is always asking how to better herself and ways she can improve her skills," said club coach Nikki Saxman.
