Readers of our blog will know that Kim Mailey and Victoria Rogers are proud parents to two successful young adults, Brook Mailey and Madison Mailey. While Brook has just completed a very successful first year at the Allard School of Law at UBC, Madison will graduate in December of this year from Northeastern University in Boston, MA where she is studying business and music. We’ve also posted about her amazing rowing career at Northeastern, which concluded May 26, 2018 at the National Championships in Sarasota, Florida. The entire Mailey Rogers family is incredibly proud of Madison for all of her accomplishments, and would like to take a moment to recognize her recent achievements with the Northeastern Huskies Women’s Rowing Crew.
An award-winning athlete
Madison was recently awarded Northeastern University’s 2018 President’s Award for top female athlete. This is an amazing honour as the award recognizes the recipient’s outstanding academic and athletic achievements, and the impact made on the school community. Just days later, Madison set the Northeastern University Women’s 2km record for the fastest erg speed – the best in the 40 year history of the school! Not a bad way to prove her strength as a “Howlin’ Husky”.
The 2018 CAA Rowing Championship
Northeastern University’s women’s rowing won the 2018 Colonial Conference Championship in early May, qualifying the team for the NCAAs at the end of the month. Watch the video below to see Madison’s interview after their big win!
A grand finale at the NCAAs and future steps…
Kim Mailey and Victoria Rogers were thrilled to be in Sarasota, Florida last weekend to support Madison and the entire Northeastern Women’s Rowing crew at the season’s final rowing event. The Huskies placed 19th in the country’s top Division 1 schools. They were denied the podium, but proud of their national ranking in a field of over 300 U.S. universities. They are pictured off the water proudly wearing their Northeastern University Women’s Rowing blazers, which were donated to the team by Kim Mailey and Victoria Rogers. We will continue to support the team through the donation of these blazers after Madison’s time at Northeastern has concluded…a legacy to support women’s empowerment, and the athlete’s pride in their school and rowing team.

Madison hopes to be selected to Canada’s National U23 team that will compete at the World Championships in Poland in July 2018. We will keep you apprised of this pursuit.
Thank you to all of the incredible coaches at NU and particularly to Head Coach Joe Wilheim for guiding these athletes. Your legendary dedication is appreciated by all. Congratulations again to Madison Mailey and the entire rowing crew!
