The University of Mary Washington rowing team is the club rowing (sport) team of the University of Mary Washington, located in Fredericksburg, Virginia. The program was a founding member of the Mid-Atlantic Rowing Conference in 2008, and has remained therein since.



The team practiced at Lake of the Woods until the fall of 2007 when it relocated to the Rappahannock River. After flooding of the river washed out a dock, the program began rowing at Aquia Creek in Stafford, Virginia.

Status of the team[edit]

In August 2007 the University's administration declared that the program would be recommended for long-term suspension. The team was successfully reinstated through the efforts of alumni, current rowers, and the University as a whole. However, in the spring of 2014, it was announced that the team would be losing its varsity status and would be transitioning to a club program pending student interest.

Notable members[edit]

  • Kelley Tice: All-American (2004, 2005, 2006, 2007)
  • Kemp Savage: Head Coach Women's Rowing at Eastern Michigan University
