Lily Judevine

Associate Program Director and Novice Women Head Coach

Lily Judevine pictureLily started rowing in 2010 as a freshman in high school for the Humboldt Bay Rowing Association. She spent most of her practices in a 2x or 1x, training hard to qualify for nationals. In her senior year she was elected team captain. That year she earned third place at regionals in the 1x which qualified her for nationals where she placed top 10 in the nation.

Lily rowed at Cal her freshman year and still races when she can. Prior to coaching, she restored rowing shells and antique oars, which is still something she loves. In her spare time she cycles, mountain bikes, backpacks, fishes, and of course, ergs.
