Grace Hollowell is entering her third year as assistant coach with the Dartmouth women's rowing team in 2016-17.
Before arriving in Hanover, Hollowell served as the assistant lightweight coach at Boston University. In just a year, she helped lead the newly-formed program to a top-four finish at the IRA Regatta and assisted in growing the squad to a team of more than 35 women in the span of two years.
Prior to working with the Terriers, she was the head novice coach at Smith College from 2011-12 before being promoted to assistant coach of the varsity program from 2012-13. She also coached at the Harvard University Rowing Camp during the summers of 2009-14.
Hollowell was a four-year member of the Pioneer High School Rowing team, where she was a co-captain as a senior. She received the MVP award in 2005 and the Excellence Award the following year. In her four years at Harvard, she was a three-year letterwinner on the lightweight rowing team and a co-captain for the 2009-10 season.
Hollowell graduated from Harvard in 2010 with a degree in social anthropology and earned her master’s in exercise and sport studies from Smith in 2013.
