Two Albertians who won rowing medals for MAGS and have represented New Zealand are now studying and rowing at Ivy League American universities.
Carl Pracey (above left) is heading to Cornell University in New York, and Jonathan Winter is at Yale University in Connecticut. Both completed their studies at MAGS in 2015, and in their final rowing season were part of the Eight which made the A Final of the Maadi Cup for the first time in 53 years. Jonathan was selected for the NZ Junior squad in 2015 and raced for New Zealand at the Junior World Championships in Rio; he and Carl were selected for the squad in 2016 and competed in the Netherlands.
Between their rowing training for the university teams, Jonathan is studying for a degree in Economics, and Carl will study Agricultural Science with a minor in Climate Change.
