On Saturday, John O’Donnell christened a new Fluid Design 4 man racing shell named in his honor.
Surrounded by the LBSU Rowing team, John O Donnell and CSULB President Jane Conoley, display the commemorative rowing blade. The inscription reads:
His dedication as a rower, coach, and boatmaster has been instrumental in advancing the success of Beach Crew. He represents the best traditions of Long Beach State Rowing and is a role model to future rowers and coaches.
