Diane Horrocks - Vice President/Secretary - Diane joined GSLR in 2012 after falling in love again with coaching rowing after ten years of coaching her daughter's soccer team. She started with Royal Chester Rowing Club in England at 17 and rowed through college at the University of Birmingham. She met her husband whilst sharing a sculling boat with Birmingham City Rowing Club. That's also where she accomplished her greatest achievement in winning the Gold Medal at the British National Championships. She briefly rowed in Huntsville Alabama for the Rocket City Rowing Club before moving to Utah ... Who thought there'd be rowing in this desert!!
Sara Grandy - Born in Salt Lake City, UT. My first rowing experience was in high school, on an 8 for the Utah Summer Games back in 2002, I think. I had enough fun that time to make me look into crew my freshman year of college at Lewis & Clark. I rowed for a year on an 8 and a 4 in 2004. I came back to Utah for the rest of my undergraduate degree and happened upon GSLR by chance and came out to check off my rowing skills with Sonia so I could row on my own. It was my first time on a single scull and the weather did not cooperate. I bumped into the big boat dock at least once bu Sonia still passed me off. I have yet to attend a Flaming Gorge trip or the row to Antelope Island; I am determined to do both.
Irene Lysenko- Training - Irene grew up in Vernal, Utah, but has spent the last two decades living around New York City in New York, New Jersey and, most recently, Connecticut. An avid runner, she began looking for a new sport when her knee began to give out. Some friends introduced her to rowing nine years ago, and she's never looked back. Irene has loved every moment of competition including The Head of the Charles and US Rowing Nationals. She's also enjoyed coaching youth in the sport and loves to see the lightbulbs go on when people begin to understand and fall in love with rowing. Irene is glad to be back in Utah and be a part of growing this sport in this part of the country.
