Assistant Women's Crew Coach Davis Steps Down

Aug. 14, 2006

After five years of service, Assistant Coach Carrie Davis has resigned as Stanford's Assistant Women's Crew Coach. 'This is not a decision I came to lightly, but it is one I feel is in the best interest of my family and me,' states Davis. 'It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as the Assistant to Aimee Baker and the Women's Team. I have watched this program rise from near anonymity to its current national standing and am confident that the student-athletes who comprise this Stanford team will continue to foster tremendous success for the program. I look forward to cheering them forward in the years to come.'

The 2006 season highlights some of Coach Davis's greatest accomplishments at Stanford. Under her leadership the Varsity Four finished 9th at the NCAA Championship and 3rd at the Pac-10 Championship, the highest finish for this boat in the history of the program. Additionally, her Novice Four won the Pacific Coast Rowing Championship, another first for the program. With her help Stanford Women's Crew secured team bids to the 2006, 2003, and 2002 National Championship and successfully recruited 28 of the country's best student-athletes.

Stanford is currently conducting a national search for a Head Women's Crew coach. The new staff will likely be in place by the beginning of September.
