This year the coaching staff is happy to welcome Katie Hodnik. Katie just finished her fourth year with Duquesne Rowing and is happy to return as a coach while completing her doctor of Pharmacy Degree here at Duquesne University. After rowing 4 years at North Allegheny High school in Pittsburgh Katie joined Duquesne Rowing as a lightweight rower. She was a driving force in the lightweight 4 that was invited to IRAs in 2007 and the first lightweight 8 to race at the IRA in 2008. She is a strong addition to the coaching staff and will be working with novice rowers and scullers.
