Two alums of the High Performance Group, Lauren Schmetterling and Meghan "Moose" Musnicki, just officially punched their tickets to Rio for the 2016 Olympic Games. Currently sitting in 3 and 5 seat, respectively, of the Women's 8+, the two are not unfamiliar with this event: Schmetterling has been in the women's 8 since 2013, and Moose was a member of the Olympic gold medal-winning crew in London in 2012. The duo are currently ranked by World Rowing as two of the top 10 female rowers in the world (Schmetterling #2 and Musnicki #4).
They'll be joining fellow RBC HPG alums Anthony Fahden (LM4-, USA) and Shelley Pearson (W1x, Bermuda), who qualified their respective boats earlier this year.

Congratulations and go USA!
