SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Santa Clara women's crew's Charlotte Shannon was named to U.S. Rowing's Women's National Team Freshman Camp this week, joining 21 other college freshman rowers from around the nation. Shannon, one of only two WCC rowers selected to the camp, which will run from June 18-24 at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wis., helped the Bronco women to a second-place effort at the WCC Championships in April, the team's highest-ever conference finish.
"Charlotte's passion for rowing and her work ethic have been contagious amongst the novices," said Santa Clara women's crew coach Carlo Facchino. "She is a leader by example, keeps the atmosphere light hearted, yet she works hard to inspire those around her. She is a joy to have out on the water and I'm excited to see her get the opportunity to pursue rowing outside of the collegiate environment."
The camp, which will be run by Wisconsin women's rowing coach Bebe Bryan, was established to identify first-year rowers at the collegiate level who have the potential to compete at the National Team level.
