“Being a girl on a predominantly men’s crew team was probably the most intimidating yet best decision I have made at URI. Everyone is so genuine and I have come to love the sport. I can’t picture what college would be like if I didn’t have to wake up every morning at 5am and get into a boat worried if we were going to flip or not. Quite honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
