Molly Kottas

1st Year

Novice Boys Coach (Fall 2021-Present)

Rowing has been her entire life, since before she could even walk. Her first time in the coxswain

seat was at the age of nine months. This led her to finish her rowing career with a wonderful and

effective four years as a varsity coxswain (2009-2013). This sport has been joked about as the

“family business”. She won medals in CPSRA and NEIRA, participated in Head of the Charles and

also got to watch her brother compete in The Royal Henley Regatta. She looks forward to having

a new and different perspective.
