Riley Wilson

Vice President

Riley Wilson

Bio: Hello - My name is Riley Wilson and I am a senior majoring in Marketing from Cleveland, Ohio. I joined the team my second semester freshman year with no previous rowing experience to try something new and could not have imagined the impact it would have on my life at Miami. I grew up playing tennis and soccer and knew I wanted to find another team sport at school and I have loved learning so much about rowing since joining. Being a part of this team is a great opportunity to meet amazing people, work hard for yourself and your team, and truly shape your college experience in the best way.

Women's Captain

Alexis Franklin

Bio: Hey there! I’m Alexis Franklin, this year’s captain for the women’s team. I started rowing for Nashville in middle school, so crew has been apart of my life for awhile. I’m majoring in Economics with minors in History and Emerging Tech. If you’re considering joining or want to talk, don’t hesitate to contact me! This sport is a great way to make friends and a great way to spend some time outside. My favorite part of crew is traveling to races with the team! When I’m not at crew I like to hike, see live music, and hang with friends.

Head Coxswain

Zach Kim

BioHello - I'm Zach Kim; most of my team calls me "Zim." I am a Junior Engineering Management major with a concentration in Manufacturing. I am going on my third season as Head Coxswain and my eighth season of rowing. I began my rowing journey as a Junior at Perrysburg high school, where I fell in love with the sport. Joining MURC has been one of the best decisions I have made at college; this is where I have found community. Being a part of our tight-knit team motivates me day in and day out to put my best foot forward and always give 110% to everything I do. My team members consistently push me to be not only the best coxswain I can be but the best teammate, student, and person in general. My team members are the most important people to me, and I treasure each individual dearly. Being a part of my team's successes and shortcomings drives me to continue learning and adapting my coxing knowledge whenever and wherever possible. I am ecstatic to see how much we can grow our team by the end of my time at Miami.
