We'd like to extend a hearty Boilermaker welcome to newest coach Alicia Clark! Alicia will serve as this year's Novice Women's Head Coach, and she's a friendly, familiar face as she began her rowing journey in 2011 when she joined Purdue Crew as a freshman. She stroked the Novice 8 to a 3rd place finish at the Dad Vail Regatta, and for the next three years, she sat in 2-seat in the V8 that earned medals at most races. She finished off her Purdue Crew career by being named Most Valuable Oarswomen in 2015.
Since graduating from college, Alicia started her coaching career in the online space by starting her own business, became a Master Indoor Rowing Instructor through UCanRow2, also became a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer. Combining strength training and rowing is her passion, and she's excited to bring that knowledge to the team to create some strong and wickedly fast rowers.
Welcome Back Alicia!
