Patterman garners D1 rowing scholarship

A former member of the Grand Valley State University Rowing Club, Kylen Patterman, has earned an
NCAA Division I scholarship with the University of Louisville.

Patterman will join the Louisville women’s rowing team after finishing out her distinguished career at
GVSU. She competed at the varsity level in both 2012 and 2013, and was a major contributor to the
team’s American Collegiate Rowing Association’s national titles. She was named to the ACRA All-
American First Team in 2013.

She graduated with a degree in anthropology in three years, and has two years of eligibility remaining
at the NCAA level.

The Cardinals figure to be one of the top teams in the Big East Conference again this season after
placing second in the 2013 Big East Championship.
