LMU rowing head coach Dr. Vaclav Kacir announced on Tuesday that former Lion Hanna Osborne will return to LMU in the role of assistant coach. Osborne, a 2013 All-West Coast Conference selection as a senior, was a four-year letterwinner for the Lions, including a captain in her final year. Osborne returns to LMU after most recently working at Green Lake Crew in her hometown of Seattle, Wash.

"I'm very excited to have Hanna onboard," Kacir said. "She has a great work ethic and positive attitude that will greatly benefit the team along with her knowledge of the University and program as an alumna."

As a senior, Osborne helped the Varsity 8+ to a victory over WCC-Champion Gonzaga in a head-to-head and helped defend the Berg Cup with a victory in the Varsity 8+ race. A two-time Lion Pride award winner and member of SAAC while at LMU, Osborne also guided the Varsity 8+ to a fourth-place finish at the WCC Championships, helping LMU to a third-place overall finish in the standings that year. She was also a member of the Varsity 8+ in 2012, helping the Lions to a fourth-place finish in the V8+ at the 2012 WCC Championships and a sixth-place finish in the V8+ Grand Final at the 2012 Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association (WIRA) Championships.



Prior to enrolling at LMU, Osborne was a four-year letterwinner in rowing under coach Coby Stites at Green Lake Crew in Seattle, Wash. Rowing as part of the varsity open weight 8, she won a Northwest Regional Championship and placed sixth at the Youth National Championships Grand Final in 2008. Osborne also won the 2006 Northwest Regional Regatta with the varsity lightweight 8, and the Petite Final at the 2006 Youth National Championships with the same boat.

Osborne graduated from LMU in 2013 with a degree in health and human sciences.
