My name is Emory Oakes from Tulsa, Oklahoma. I will be graduating from Lincoln Christian School in May 2024. I currently row with the Tulsa Youth Rowing Association and began rowing in March 2021. Even though I am new to the sport, I am dedicated to learning and growing in my ability. I look forward to gaining competitive experiences in the years to come and am excited to see what my future holds as a rowing athlete.
I am committed to excelling in my high school education and my goal is to graduate with a 4.0 GPA or better with my eyes set on medical school post-college graduation. I would be honored to represent a university as a contributing member of a rowing team and will work hard to represent Tulsa Youth Rowing Association my novice season in 2021-2022.
I recently completed four continuous weeks of Tulsa Youth Rowing Association's LTR summer camp and am even more passionate about this sport! I am grateful to the coaches and my teammates for this opportunity to shape my future in competitive rowing.
