Leah Shamlian, Oaktown, Va.

Leah Shamlian came to Puget Sound from Virginia because she wanted a college that let her balance coursework and crew while still being competitive. “At Puget Sound, I have found a combination of academics and athletics that lets me challenge myself in both areas without curtailing my involvement in either. Faculty support has helped me to already exceed my collegiate rowing career expectations, and I look forward to working toward the continued success of Logger Crew.”
