West Windsor, New Jersey - Former USD men's rower Ryan Shelton '09 has earned a spot on the United States national team that will compete at the world championships later this summer. Shelton teamed up with three others rowers from California Rowing Club and the four scullers earned the first spots on the U.S. team that will compete at the World Rowing Championships August 25-September 1 in Chungju, South Korea.

Shelton, from Wrightwood, California, rowed with Hans Struzyna (Seattle, Washington), Andrew Gallagher (Phoenix, Arizona) and Derek Johnson (Hillsborough, California). Racing on Mercer Lake on June 26th, the four scullers used a strong final 300 meter push to fight back and win with a time of 5:48.43. They edged out the Potomac Boat Club quad that finished runner-up with a time of 5:49.19.

Shelton is in his first year with the trio of Gallagher, Struzyna and Johnson who all have previous experience on the national team. The first goal was to make the senior team, and now they hope to make some noise at the World Championships in South Korea.
