COURNOYER ON ROWING AT UCONN: "Being on the women's rowing team here at UConn has brought me so many wonderful experiences and has taught me so much as an individual. Through all the early morning practices and rough winter training workouts I have learned determination, dedication and perseverance. Nothing has taught me more about being a responsible young adult the way being a part of this team has. I will always cherish the long time friendships I have made with this team and all the wonderful memories I have from the two years I spent rowing for UConn.
