Atticus Kane

Atticus Kane started his rowing career in 2014 with Arlington Belmont Crew, finishing his time there as a 2018 MPSRA state champion in the boys varsity 8+. He continued rowing in college for UMass Men’s Rowing, where he sat in the varsity 8+ for multiple years, served on the executive board, and was elected team captain for his senior campaign. He also spent the summer of 2019 training and racing for the CRI U23 program.

Atticus graduated from UMass in 2022 with a B.S. in Kinesiology, and currently works for a landscaping and gardening company based in his hometown, Arlington. Fall 2023 will be Atticus’ first season coaching for BLS, and he couldn’t be more excited to pass along everything he’s learned about this great sport to his athletes. When he isn’t working or coaching, Atticus can be found playing basketball, going to the gym, or rewatching the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Boys Novice Assistant Coach

Andy Hui

Andy learned to row as a senior at BLS in Spring 2015, when Boys Crew was relaunched. He served as captain and was the stroke seat of the 1N8+. The Boys’ first official win came at Dual of the Latins that season, but Andy could not be more proud of what BLS Boys Crew has become since.

In his freshman year at UMass Amherst, Andy enjoyed a brief stint with Men's Rowing, starting as a novice and being promoted to varsity. He sat in bow and briefly the coxswain's seat, and made the most of the opportunity to develop as a rower and absorb as much knowledge about the sport as possible.

After graduating with B.S. degrees in Public Health and Environmental Science in 2020, Andy came home to pursue his Master of Public Health at Boston University and graduated in 2022. Andy currently enjoys mission-driven work at the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Andy understands the rigors and anxieties of being a BLS student with different sports and extracurriculars year-round. Despite his ultimately brief experience, Andy fell head over heels for Crew and hopes to instill good habits and the same passion in all newcomers to the sport, believing that Crew is for everyone.

Outside of Crew, Andy is training for his first marathon and the full Boston Triathlon. He enjoys photography, health and wellness, nature, and movies, as well as making music with BU Concert Band, BU Pep Band, and Elevator Five.
