About the Bison
• Stephen Kish, a 1992 graduate, is in his 22nd year as Bucknell's head women's rowing coach. According to Kish, "The Schuylkill is a great way to bring together our alumni and our current team and their families. We spend the entirety of the fall semester rowing in doubles as a way to improve our boat-moving skills as well as an injury prevention measure. The smaller boat allows the athletes to feel how they are individually impacting the speed and balance of the boat, while the two oars helps their bodies develop symmetrically before moving on to the asymmetrical sweep motion in the spring."
