The official page of SPU men's and women's varsity rowing. Go Falcons!

09/20/2016

Dear SPU Crew alumni, supporters, and friends,

It is with certain sadness that I announce that the University has relieved me of my duties as Head Rowing Coach as of June 30, citing "a new direction." Of subsequent and heavier news is that the University has recently announced the elimination of men's varsity rowing. This is difficult news for sure for many, but it is with many great victories, relationships, championships, growth, and experiences however, that we can all continue to celebrate Falcon rowing.

Many perhaps don't know that when I took the position 26 years ago I was told a month later that they were dropping the entire rowing program. Well five Athletics directors, five University presidents, and over two and half decades later, we not only survived we thrived. Since that time we have accomplished many amazing things with so many great people that I'm proud and humbled to have been affiliated with all of you. Just a few of course are the great champions including seven national championship Falcon crews, and the many other national level medaling crews which include the 2009 NCAA 3rd-place women's V8 and the 2010 NCAA Team Runner Up trophy winners. We've had dozens of regional and coast victories, countless conference wins and medals. We have had an undefeated men's and women's crew, the latter even managing a quadruple championship: the only SPU crew to win the conference, the region, the coast, and the national title at the National Invitational Rowing Championship. Those ladies went on to represent us all the way to the semi-finals at the 2004 Henley Women's Regatta in England as well, falling to Brown & Princeton, their only loss that year.

And achieving all this with almost no institutional funding has been almost miraculous except that so much has been at your generous hand. Literally the hundreds of thousands of donated dollars and so much equipment that has helped keep us safe and sharp and on the cutting edge. Many boats, oars, launches, ergs, and other critical items were purchased on your contributions, and likely eighty to ninety percent of the operations and travel and assistant salaries. My gratitude is without apt expression to all of you who have given so richly during my tenure. But thank you!

Additionally, I am so pleased to have been part of a terrific philanthropic effort by the teams through our car wash campaigns. These have graduated two Guatemalan nurses, as well as a nurse, a teacher, and two doctors from Hope Africa University. Additionally we were able to purchase nearly a herd of goats for beleaguered Egyptians. This was hard work during the demanding Spring Break training and competition schedule, and I am humbled by the student-athletes who did this amazing chore without complaint. You all can honestly say you are "world changers".

Beyond all that, the deep bonds you all formed, and those that I have personally experienced, have been so rich and have blessed me so much I hardly know where to start saying thank you. I think we lost count somewhere around 33 crew marriages, something I did not pursue specifically, but nevertheless have been a real bonus for the institution of marriage and for those excellent families that were started from our crew family. As the alumni continued to stack up over the years, 15 of you I believe went on to become my assistants, and anyone who has done anything like this knows that these leaders really are the backbone of any organization. I cannot express fully how inspirational and critical you all were to our success. Of notable mention were you few who for so little pay - or none - stayed for so long: Wendy Stubenrauch who helped me get started for the first three years; Jessie Pennington, 7 years; Matt Shi, 8 years; Zeke Schellberg, 7 years, you're amazing. Others who deserve honorable mention due to their unbelievably high impact are Josh Adam, Kip Wassink, Holly Allan, and Katy Stine. Two of these honor us all and have gone on to highly successful coaching careers of their own. And there are many more, you know who you are because you remain such good friends for me today.

As important to me as all the aforementioned is, I am glad most of all to have kept our mission prominently out ahead of our great rowing efforts. We have kept Christ centered in our program, have striven to represent Him, and we have endeavored to do the competition thing rather differently than the world does it. I believe God has returned the favor greatly upon us. His ability to take rather common individuals (myself most of all) through struggle and growth in rowing to such great team heights is staggering and has been worth all the work and strife. I'm thankful to all of you but thankful that God has chosen to use me in this capacity for so long. May He continue to bless our efforts through our lives, work, and relationships.

"O satisfy us in the morning, with Thy lovingkindness...and let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; and do confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, confirm the work of our hands." Psalm 90:14,17

Many thanks and blessings,
Keith Jefferson

At our spring break car wash, not only did we raise money for our Hope Africa University student, but we also were able to purchase 5 goats for families in rural Egypt! THANK YOU to all who supported these efforts.
