Dagger 2009 Team Athletes

Full roster of Dagger-sponsored paddlers for 2009

Easley, S.C. – The official roster for Team Dagger 2009 includes paddling icons and up-and-coming talents in the sport. To Dagger, the people on this list represent much more than the opportunity to win competitions. (Though, we like that, too!)

Team Dagger athletes are integral to the keeping Dagger designs on the cutting edge, but that's only one facet of their work. Their enthusiasm for paddling and spreading the love of the sport inspires people to get involved. Many members of the team are integrating paddling into broader fund-raising efforts and important social and environmental causes.

Congratulations to this year's Team Dagger athletes and ambassadors. Regardless of future results and accomplishments, we're proud of the people who wear the Dagger logo.

Team Dagger:
Andrew Holcombe (Team Manager), Tao Berman, Chris Gragtmans, Pat Keller, Anna Levesque, Brad Ludden, Rush Sturges and Corey Volt
Dagger Ambassadors: Tyler Bradt, Lizzy English, Scott Fiendel, Christie Glissmeyer, Ken Hoeve, Alex Hotze, Scott Ligare, Andy Maser and Katie Scott
