Head rowing coach Sara Nevin has announced the hiring of Amanda Ridley. Ridley will take-over assistant coach duties starting in the spring 2017 season. A Political, Legal, and Economic Analysis major at Mills, Ridley was a four-year member of the rowing team. As a rower she could row both sides, in any seat, and was one of few rowers who could row in the ends or the middle of the boat. Nevin notes that she could make a pair go faster, no matter who she was rowing with. A hard-working, dedicated teammate she was selected for the Cyclone Award, presented to the team member who best exemplifies the ideals of dedication and commitment and who has made significant contributions towards team morale and spirit, in both 2014 and 2015.
The rowing team is excited to welcome her back to Mills and is looking forward to the spring season.
