David S. Peterson Golden Oar Society
We inaugurated the David S. Peterson Golden Oar Society (surprsing Smedly, who had no idea it was going to be named for him) “to recognize and celebrate those who have made significant contributions to the legacy and the lifeblood of Pacific Lutheran University Rowing.”
The first inductees were the 1967 “Rowdown Crew” for their extraordinary efforts to deliver the “Loyal Shoudy” and firmly place PLU rowing in the hearts, minds and souls of the PLU administration and the rowing community nationwide. (Read about them here or in the program from the Gala.)

LCAA was formed in 2009 by a small group of past rowers that wanted to ensure the long term success of PLU Rowing and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the program. We welcome anyone that wants to participate. Plan to dial into our next monthly organizational meetings via teleconference. Send us an email if you’d like to participate! We’d love to reconnect with you.
Our official mission statement: The mission of the Lute Crew Alumni Association is to assure the organizational longevity and competitive success of the men's and women's rowing team of Pacific Lutheran University through the provision of financial support and by fostering community between the University, alumni and current athletes.
