The April 2012 issue of Rowing News is on the way, and if you're interested in what to look for this college rowing season–be it IRA teams, NCAA programs, or ACRA and Dad Vail squads–we're giving you an inside take, with input from a number of top coaches around the country, including Virginia's Kevin Sauer and Frank Biller, Charley Butt of the Harvard lightweight men's program, John Fuchs of Western Washington, and Sandy Calfo of Purdue. In addition to our preview of the collegiate rowing season, our cover story–an interview with Harvard men's head coach Harry Parker, now entering his 50th season at the helm of the Crimson squad–details the legendary coach's views on NCAA v. IRA, the origins of seat racing, his team and his legacy. Combine this with advice on how to coach the sprint from three-time Olympian and UCLA women's head coach Amy Fuller Kearney, coverage of the first NSR, the growing scene for rowing in Austin, TX, and reflections on rowing and coaching from Olympic gold and silver medalist Xeno Müller, and you'll be fully prepared for what's to come on the water this spring.

Coming soon to RR: Part II of our interview with Williams College head coach Kate Maloney to be posted this Friday, with an interview with lightweight sculler Nick Trojan (who took fourth place in the M1x at NSR I) to be posted next week.
