COACH GLENN ON HOLMES
"Holly is in her second year of rowing and brings a quality that coaches love to work with. She is a fighter. Holly has a competitive spirit and does not let herself get satisfied. She just goes after it. What Holly will need to do this winter is channel that great energy wisely so that she can become more of a finesse rower also."
