Claire PochÉ

Claire Poché comes to the Berkshire from the Louisiana State University Crew, where she is a rower and coxswain, as well as serving as team equipment manager. Claire started rowing in 2016 at Clonmel Rowing Club in Clonmel, Ireland, where she fell in love with the sport. Claire loves the challenge inherent in the sport, in both the mental and physical sense, and it has taught her a lot. Claire is looking forward to her summer at Berkshire, where she hopes to share both the lessons rowing has taught her and her enjoyment of it.

Patrick started rowing in the fall of 2011 as a freshman in high school in Northern Virginia. Following high school, Patrick was a four year rower at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA.
