Lindsay began rowing in 1982 as a freshman at Williams College and has been involved in the sport ever since. He was a captain of the team his senior year, and then went on to be a part of the U.S. Pre-Elite team in 1986, the U.S. Pan American Games Team in 1987 and the U.S. Olympic Team in 1988. He won several national titles during those years, and then turned to teaching and coaching at St. Andrew's School. Lindsay also coached as part of the staff of the 1995 U.S. Junior National Team that traveled to Poznan, Poland to compete in the Junior World Championships, and he worked as a trustee of the Scholastic Rowing Association of America for 24 years.
During his years at St. Andrew's School, Lindsay led four crews to international competition at the Henley Royal Regatta in England. Many of his former rowers continued on to a variety of collegiate programs, and several went on to compete in and even win gold medals at World Championship and Olympic competitions.
Lindsay sees a connection between strong academic and strong athletic performance, with student-athletes learning the values of consistent hard work, teamwork, sportsmanship, joyful effort, and friendship. Rowing truly is a lifetime sport, and seeing a novice rower gain the skills and the passion for the sport, or an experienced rower improve their fitness and sharpen their racing strategy is always deeply rewarding. Lindsay is excited to work with the Dublin rowing program and build on the excellent traditions that are already well established down at the boathouse.
