@DuqWRow Announces Staff Changes
Sept. 27, 2016
PITTSBURGH - Women's rowing coach Joe Setting announced today that long-time assistant coach Jenn Langzettel has been elevated to associate head coach and that former DU coxswain Megan Parmarter has been added to the staff as an assistant coach.
Langzettel, who joined the DU staff with Setting in the fall of 2006, is beginning her 11th season coaching Duquesne's rowers.
"Elevating Jenn to associate head coach was something I have wanted to do for years, and I am elated we have been able to make it come to fruition," said Setting. "Words can't describe how much of a valued member she is to our coaching staff and team. She is a talented coach who is passionate about the sport of rowing and more so about Duquesne University. 'Above and beyond' is the norm for Jenn and her contributions have come in many forms. I am extremely appreciative of all that she has done and will undoubtedly continue to do for this team into the future."
Langzettel, a native of Middlebury, Conn., rowed competitively at Franklin Pierce College in Rindge, N.H. where she completed her undergraduate degree. She added a graduate degree in secondary science education from Duquesne in 2007.
Parmarter got her start in rowing as a sophomore at Duquesne. After a year in the boat, she made the move to coxswain where she competed at a multitude of regattas, including Head of the Schuylkill, Head of the Occoquan, the Knecht Cup, and Dad Vails.
"Megan was an accomplished student-athlete on our team during her undergraduate years and her addition to the coaching staff will benefit our team in countless ways," said Setting. "Her background as a walk-on rower who gravitated to coxing in her second yeargives a unique dynamic to our staff. Megan is an excellent teacher. I can recall the times when I listened to her calling practices when she was an athlete on the team. She always had a way of making things understandable for her crew. I am confident that same ability will transfer to the coaching launch and benefit our student-athletes."
Parmarter, who joins fellow former DU rower Courtney Purslow as an assistant on the staff, completed her undergraduate degree in English at Duquesne in 2014.
