Woodbridge, Va.

High School:
Woodbridge H.S.





"Rachel has a high level of proficiency on the water and a real competitive presence on the ergometer. These two characteristics result in efficiency which could place her above most competitors as she commits to taking advantage of it. Her focus on discipline on the water and power in the weight room will make her presence in the boat dominant. Rachel is also one of our captains this year and will play a major role on the team during pre-season and early season competition."
