The Boston College Athletic Department announced Monday evening that rowing head coach Steve Fiske has resigned from his post as the head coach of the school’s rowing program. Grace Hollowell, an assistant at BC since 2018, was promoted to the head coaching spot.
“We can’t thank [Fiske] enough for his years of dedicated service to our rowing program and the positive impact he made in all of his student-athletes’ lives,” athletic director Martin Jarmond said. “He has been our only head coach in program history and has done an amazing job leading our program since we converted rowing from a club sport here at BC.”
Under Fiske, the rowing program produced 56 National Scholar-Athletes and two Fulbright Scholars. Additionally, the Eagles won the Dad Vail Championship during the first five years of Fiske’s tenure. However, the Eagles never finished better than fourth at the ACC Championship during his tenure.
“I am proud of what we accomplished during my time at BC,” said Fiske. “The timing is never right to leave, but an opportunity presented itself that for me and my family was too difficult to say no to. I want to thank all of our student-athletes past and present for all of your contributions to our rowing program. I know it is in great hands under Grace’s leadership.”
