Why Radcliffe? Nothing beats walking into the dining hall after morning practice, where I was just inspired by watching and working beside the strongest group of women on campus leave it all on the erg/water, and know how much I’ve accomplished before most people even wake up.  

If rowers had a walk-out song, what would yours be? “Giant,”  Calvin Harris (Robin Schulz Remix)
