Grandson of NP couple competes on U.S. rowing team

Kenny McMahon, son of Bob and Peggy McMahon of Ladysmith, WI, and grandson of Harold and Terry McMahon of New Prague, represented the United States in the World Rowing Championships in Strathclyde, Scotland, this summer.

McMahon joined the rowing team at the University of Wisconsin-Madison as a walk-on during his freshman year in 2004.
