Carolina Story: Virtual Museum of University History


After more than 20 years as a club sport, rowing earned varsity status in 1997. The team, as well as the crew club, practices on University Lake. In 2003, as the ACC celebrated its 50th anniversary, five UNC rowers were named among the top 50 rowers in ACC history: Marie "Sam" Hermitte, Claire Hozier, Erin Neppel, Lucienne Papon, and Dana Peirce.
