West Chester native Madeline Davis, a rising star as a coach in collegiate rowing, has been selected to run the women’s rowing program at Boston University, writes Jonathan Chang for BU Today.
Davis has moved on to BU from Ohio State, where she helped the open weight team win two national titles, as well as four consecutive Big Ten championships.
Davis grew up surrounded by rowing. Her father rowed both at the collegiate and masters level, which helped familiarize her with Philadelphia’s rowing community. She decided to try the sport out for herself when she began attending Sacred Heart in Bryn Mawr.
“I loved it immediately,” she said. “It was so different than other sports I had tried, and I’d tried pretty much every other sport out there.”
She discovered her passion for coaching after she took the head coaching job at the Hun School of Princeton, where she guided the girls’ varsity 4+ team to an undefeated dual season.
