BROCK ROWING HISTORY
Rowing was the first varsity sport for Brock University starting in 1964 when the university first opened. The first coach was the legendary Jack Nicholson, a long time coach of the St. Catharines Rowing club. The Brock program was able to start at a minimal cost with the generous support of the St. Catharines Rowing Club loaning Brock all the racing shells, oars and other equipment required.
In 1965 Brock christened their first shell. Tony Biernacki was hired at Brock as technician in the chemistry department and became the head coach for rowing in the same year.
Women's rowing started at Brock University in 1967. At the time no other universities had womens teams. It was the impetus for starting womens competitive rowing in Canada. 1967 also marked the first year that Brock rowing won a championship banner.
