Our Head of Rowing Lucy Stratton did her undergraduate degree at Loughborough University in England and also represented Great Britain at the U23 Championships before moving to America in 2022 to be a graduate student and row at UCLA. During her time at UCLA Lucy rowed five seat in the Bruins’ V8+ crew with a highlight being helping the UCLA’s boat to a first-place finish in a four-boat race against Michigan State, Minnesota and Central Florida in the morning session on day one at the Big Ten Invitational in Sarasota, Florida. Enrolled in UCLA’s Transformative Coaching and Leadership graduate program Lucy also excelled in the classroom and was recognised as a CRCA Scholar-Athlete selection at the conclusion of the rowing season. Lucy’s exceptional experiences and achievements both in the UK and US make her the ideal person to help the next generation of talented rowers with their journey to becoming a student-athlete in America.
