LITTLEWOOD ON ROWING AT UCONN: "Rowing here is great because UConn really takes care of its athletes. Being at a big school with other successful sports teams has been a very cool, albeit intense, experience. There are high expectations, and you really have to bring it every day if you want to succeed and be respected. As a child growing up in Connecticut, I never would have guessed that I would have the opportunity to work with the same people and in the same facilities as our basketball team. This has practically been a childhood dream come true! The coaches, staff, professors, and student body have been nothing but supportive. Huskies love their sports and they love to win!"
