Former Kansas University rower Emily Martin was named assistant coach/recruiting coordinator for the Jayhawks’ rowing team on Monday.

The Wellington native spent the last two years as a graduate assistant after competing for the Jayhawks from 2006-2009.

She served as a team captain during her senior year. During her junior and senior years, Martin was a member of the first varsity eight boat for every race, including the South-Central regionals where the team set a school record for 2000 meters (6:26.2).

Following the 2008 season, Martin was named the team’s most improved oarswoman.

She also was named to the Big 12 commissioner’s and athletic director’s honor rolls.
