2017-18 Team Captains

Our team captains are elected by their teammates.  It is an honor to be recognized by your peers and a privilege to serve your team in this way.

 

Nicolette McPharlin

Nicolette is a senior at St. Thomas Aquinas High School and lives in Fort Lauderdale.  She is a founding member of our team having joined in the fall of 2015 as a sophomore.  She earned a bronze medal at States last year in the JV 4+ – our first time at States.  Prior to Rowing, she was a soccer player but ran into knee problems forcing her to search for a sport which is less stressful on your body.  Lucky for us, she tried Rowing and has been a dedicated member ever since.  She always has a smile on her face and great ideas for our team!

 

Rebekah Pereira

Rebekah is also a senior at St. Thomas Aquinas High School and lives in Fort Lauderdale.  She too is a founding member of our team, attending our very first practice in 2015 when she was a sophomore.  She earned a bronze medal at our first States last year in the Junior 4+ and received our Team Spirit Award in 2015/17.  Prior to Rowing, she was a soccer player but was having too many concussions.  She is very competitive so she still wanted to be on a sport.  Fortunately, she gave Rowing a shot and has been a valuable member of our team ever since.  She is a lot of fun and brings much positive energy to our team!
