Coach Annie Sniffen rowed for Lower Merion High School for four years before being recruited to the Division III Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland. While there, she rowed in three National Collegiate Athletic Association Championships and was awarded conference and academic awards her junior and senior years. After graduating in May, she has enrolled in the Drexel University Master's program for coaching rowing. This is her first year coaching for RGCC.
Coach Brooke Wolford started her rowing career in the fall of 2014 at Sonoma State University Rowing Club. This is where Brooke was encouraged to get recruited because of her raw erg scores. The next semester she transferred to University of Central Oklahoma, a NCAA Women’s Division II program. From there she got accepted to the New York Athletic Club summer rowing program, and continued to become faster. Right after the summer in New York, she returned to UCO for her senior year and last year competing as a NCAA athlete. She was able to help lead my team for their second team bid at the NCAA National Championship where they took 2nd place as the National Runner-Up. She also became the first two time All-American rower at University of Central Oklahoma. After she graduated with her degree in Psychology she decided to move to Philadelphia to continue her rowing career. Now Brooke rows a Vesper Boat Club with their high performance team. This summer she also took the opportunity to row internationally at the 20th MacCabiah Games in Israel where she and her teammates took home gold in the 4x, 4-, 2-, and bronze in the 2x. Brooke is currently applying to Drexel University M.S. Sports Coaching Leadership program as this is her first year with RGCC
