St. Mary’s College of Maryland has a new eight-person rowing shell that has been named after its current president, Dr. Tuajuanda C. Jordan.
The rowing shell, which was donated by Dr. William Seale, is slated to be the top boat for the women’s team. The eight fastest women on the team will crew this new vessel.
“It will be an honor for crew members named to this new shell for race day,” said coach Daniel Hagelberg.
According to college officials, the shell gifted to the small liberal arts college will go a long way in helping the growing team. In its two years as a varsity sport, the rowing team has grown from 25 to nearly 50 athletes.
