Carnegie Lake Rowing Association is fortunate to have several experienced coaches to call upon throughout the year. Some are University coaches, some are from the community and have extensive coaching and rowing experience.

Reid Johnson

Reid Johnson is from Darien, CT.  His rowing career started in boarding school at Salisbury School and he spent one summer at Penn AC as a junior.  He then went on to row at Hobart College in Geneva, NY under Paul Bugenhagen.  While at Hobart, he spent 4 years on the Varsity Team, as well as serving as Team Captain for one year.  This past year, he coached at the Saugatuck Rowing Club, where his novice crew went undefeated in the fall and became 2nd Varsity 8 Northeast Regional Champions this past spring.  At  Princeton, Reid will be working with the Heavyweight Men’s team.  

Kate McCormick
Kate McCormick began rowing at Mount St. Joseph’s Academy in Flourtown, PA. Most recently Kate rowed at UNC-Chapel Hill, graduating in May 2015. She is in her first year as assistant coach with the Princeton Lightweight Women.
Jim Washburn
Jim Washburn rowed for four years at the Lawrenceville School and captained the crew for his last two years, stroking the senior four to the school’s first appearance at the Scholastic National Championships. At Trinity College, he stroked the freshman heavyweight eight to a silver medal, and a gold medal at the New England Rowing Championships in the varsity heavyweight eight.  After two years of teaching and coaching at Tabor Academy, Jim taught and coached varsity boys crews at Lawrenceville for six years.  This is the twelfth summer Jim is coaching at Craftsbury Sculling Center and his second with the Lakers.  Off the water, Jim teaches history and government at Montgomery High School.
