2013-14… Competed at Iowa home Regatta in the 3V4+ boat… helped Iowa to a third place finish (8:29.70).

Before Iowa… Member of high school’s cross country, track and field, and tennis team’s… high school coach was Brian Earnst.

Personal… Born May 28, 1995 in St. Charles, Mo… daughter of Michael and Kourtney Powell… business major.

Why Iowa… It has a great campus and great academic, sports and arts programs.

My favorite aspect of rowing is… My teammates, we all literally have to work together and everyone comes giving their best effort because they know their performance directly affects the rest of the team.

What made you want to become a rower… A family friend was on the varsity team and my family came to watch and I thought that it was really cool and different from other sports.
