NYACK, NY – Rockland County’s Charlotte Buck was selected to the US National Team and will be competing in the women’s eight in Tokyo.
Charlotte, a local Nyack resident, started rowing with the Rockland Rowing Association between her senior year at Nyack High School and her first year at Columbia University. She went to on to captain her team at Columbia. Not done with rowing after she graduated, she continued to train while coaching for Rockland. Last year, following some amazing virtual erg competitions where she finished second to the women’s world record holder, Charlotte was invited to the US Rowing training/selection camps for the women’s team. She spent the winter in Chula Vista and this spring in Princeton training with the national team and going through the selection process.
Buck is currently rowing in the 7-seat of the US Women’s eight.
The Rockland Rowing Association is hosting a “viewing party” in July at their new venue at the south end of Rockland Lake State Park, where we hope to watch Charlotte and Team USA at the Olympics on a big screen.
