Louisa Karam’s rowing career will continue at Creighton University.
The Ursuline senior signed with the Bluejays on Wednesday. Karam, who has been rowing since her freshman year, liked Creighton once she stepped on the campus in Omaha, Neb.
“I like that Creighton is a Jesuit school, and I like their business department,” Karam said. “Over the years, I just fell in love with rowing. I like the companionship and the teamwork.”
Karam already won two medals from the prestigious Stotesbury Cup Regatta, and she’s scheduled to compete in another single there this year.
“We’re really proud she got offered a scholarship at Creighton,” Ursuline coach Erin Sullivan said. “She’s always worked really, really hard on her technique. Her hard work will take her far.”
