Major at Washington: Undecided
Personal: Daughter of Cheryl and James Hubbard ... father and mother are both playground designers ... has a younger sister Katie (15) ... was born in Auckland, New Zealand.
I chose Washington because: Of the awesome rowing program.
The best thing about Seattle is: The shopping downtown and on a clear day, seeing Mt. Rainier while we a rowing.
My best race was: Head of the River, Adelaide, South Australia. I was in year 12 and it was my final school race with my eight. We came in second, but I felt that we had all worked our hardest and rowed to our potential that day.
After I graduate, I plan to: Train for the Olympics and travel around Europe.
If I could tell my incoming teammates one thing, it would be: Pull hard and you will go fast.
Hubbard says: "Washington Rowing teaches you how to push past what you thought were your limits."
