When she’s not furiously churning water with her rowing team,  Elisabeth Schweitzer, sophomore, is studying hard for school and writing for the Amplifier.

She started swimming when she was two years old, but quit when she was 14.

“I didn’t love it anymore, and it’s hard sport to do if you aren’t enamored with it,” Schweitzer said.

But Schweitzer’s love for water wasn’t  to be denied and she soon met rowing and the two became one. Schweitzer is a committed rower for the Lake Oswego Community Rowing Team. She rows six days a week on the Willamette River since last July and is on the novice team.

“I row because I’m terrible at everything else,” Schweitzer said.

Even though most of Schweitzer’s life is dominated by rowing and school, when she has free time she likes to sleep, read, and hang out with friends. She loves all genres and her favorite book is When Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley because “it humanizes terrible people and the horrors of reality without justifying it.”
