Since joining the staff in 2010, GU's novice rowing has thrived. Under Voorhees' guidance, the Bulldog Novice 8+ have claimed silver each year at the Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association (WIRA) Championships except 2014, 2015, and 2017, and followed those performances up with 17th place finishes at both the 2011 and 2012 IRA National Championships. In 2013 he coached both the Varsity 4+ and the Open 4+ at the IRA Championships, where the Open 4+ placed 11th. In 2014 the Second Varsity 8+ took 18th at the IRA Championships.
Recruiting has also flourished under Voorhees' direction, with the recruiting class of 2017 boasting 14 student-athletes -- the largest recruiting class in the program's history.
In his two years on the women's staff, Voorhees focused on coaching the Varsity 4+. The Bulldog Varsity 4+ won gold at the 2009 WIRA Championships and placed second at the 2009 West Coast Conference Championships to help GU win its 12th title in 13 years. In 2010, the Varsity 4+ claimed fourth at the WIRA Championships and again earned silver at the WCC Championships.
While a student-athlete at Gonzaga, Voorhees earned All-WIRA first team honors two-straight seasons (2002, 2003) and served as the team's captain in 2004. As a senior he helped lead the Varsity 4+ to a ninth place finish at the IRA Championships and the Varsity 8+ to a fourth place finish at the WIRA's. His junior season, he was part of the Varsity 8+ that took fifth at the ECAC National Rowing Invitational, finished second at the WIRA's and won the Cal Cup at the San Diego Crew Classic.
After graduating from Gonzaga in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science degree in exercise science, Voorhees relocated to Philadelphia to train in hopes of earning a spot on the US National Team. During his time in Philadelphia, he trained and raced at the pre-elite and elite levels for Vesper Boat Club, winning several US National and Canadian Henley Championships. He also competed in numerous National Selection Regattas, the '06, '07, and '08 World Championship Trials and the 2008 Olympic Trials. Voorhees married fellow Gonzaga alum Sinead Harris-Jones ('07) in August of 2013.
