The Wabash Valley Crew Team is hitting the Wabash River and gaining some valuable experience and gaining some new athletes in the process.

Erica Yeagley is one of the newer additions to the team and understands how big of a resource the Wabash is to the area.

“It’s nice to be on the water. People are always surprised too when we say we row on the Wabash so it’s nice to add something to Terre Haute,” Yeagley says.

The goal is not only to continue growing the sport, but to also make the river a site for future events.
