Marquette Crew Coaches

Megan Prochniak

Megan Prochniak is entering her sixth year as coach for the Marquette Men's Varsity team. She is also the Program Head Coach for Marquette Crew. As an Undergraduate at Marquette University (graduating 2006 with degrees in Finance and Marketing), Megan was a coxswain for the Men's program, which she joined as a novice her sophomore year. Since college, Megan took up sculling as an addition to running and yoga. She also continues to compete in alumni events as a coxswain whenever possible. Looking towards this new season, she is excited to continue to help build a competitive and dedicated Marquette Club and cannot wait to get back in the launch!

Gina Pagán

Gina Pagán is entering her sixth year as a coach for Marquette, and is the Head Coach for the Women's Rowing program. She was a four-year member of Marquette Crew while in college. She raced in the VW8+ at the Dad Vail Regatta two years and in the Collegiate 4+ at the Head of the Charles. Gina received the Coach's Award for the most valuable rower as a senior. She also served as the team's Public Relations chair. Under Coach Gina's leadership, Marquette's women's boats have medaled and finished well at notable regattas, such as the Illinois State Championships (ICRI), Head of the Rock, MACRA, Dad Vail and ACRA. Gina has also coached the Masters Women at the Milwaukee Rowing Club. Gina holds a Bachelor's in Business Administration from Marquette and is US Rowing Level II certified.
