    The second-ranked Women of Troy completed the 2013 campaign with a program-best fourth-place finish in the NCAA Division I Women's Rowing Championships at Eagle Creek Park on Sunday (June 2). USC's varsity four claimed silver in the fours grand final to take the podium while the Trojans' second varsity eight enjoyed a best-ever finish of fourth place. USC's varsity eight topped off the day with a sixth-place finish in its grand final.

    Katherine Gleadow enters her second year with the Trojans and will row from the port side.

    As a freshman, Gleadow was a fixture in USC's second varsity eight boat. From the bow seat, she helped the 2V8 to a sixth-place finish in the grand final at the San Diego Crew Classic. She raced from the two seat for nearly the rest of the year and helped her crew to wins over Princeton, Notre Dame, and Michigan State in head-to-head races. Gleadow's 2V8 finished sixth at the Pac-12 Championships. From the two seat, Gleadow helped the second varsity eight win a repechage race at the NCAA Championships. Gleadow moved into the stroke seat on the final day of the national championships and helped her boat to a first-place finish in the NCAA petite final.

    Gleadow rowed for the Burnaby Lake Rowing Club (Vancouver, B.C.) for five years under coaches Dick McLure and Cinda Ewton. She was a member of the Canadian Junior National Development Team in 2010 and placed first in the fours and doubles at the 2010 CanAmMex Regatta. She also raced with the Rowing British Columbia crew for one year as a member of the provincial team and helped her 8+ and 4x boats finish first at the 2011 Western Canadian Summer Games. She also finished second in the single scull event. As a senior, she placed first at the Brentwood Regatta in the single scull and was third in the Junior A doubles at the Canadian Secondary Schools Rowing Association (CSSRA) championships. In 2010, Gleadow placed third in the intermediate doubles as the US Club National Championships and was second in the junior doubles at the Canadian Henley. In 2009, she won the CSSRA's gold medal in the junior doubles. Gleadow also rowed four years for her high school under Ewton, and was named Most-Inspirational Senior and received the Athletic Service Award as a senior.
