Rowing Hosts Indiana in Fall Scrimmage

2013-14... Competed as part of the 2N8+ crew twice during the 2014 competition season... helped the Hawkeyes finish second (7:43.30) in the home opener... finished sixth (7:44.997) at the Big Ten Championship at Eagle Creek Park.

Before Iowa... Three-year member of high school's golf team... took eighth place at the Iowa State Golf Meet as a junior... regional champions as a senior... awarded the Director's Choice Award in 2012... Vice President of Roots and Shoots, a charity and environmental group... member of the Academic Decathlon.

Personal... Born March 5, 1994 in Riverside, Calif... Daughter of Jason and Mindy Williams and Dennis and Shannon Dunham... sports and recreational management major.

Why Iowa... There is always something going on and there is always an opportunity to learn new things.

My favorite aspect of rowing is... the team aspect about rowing. Knowing that we are all following, working, and relying on one another to send the boat through the water is really special.

What made you want to become a rower... I wanted to expand my life experiences and I wanted a challenge. Rowing definitely hits both of the goals.
