Alycia Kime enters her third season at Rhode Island in 2018-19 after she joined Shelagh Donohoe’s coaching staff in August 2016.
Rhode Island won its sixth Atlantic 10 Championship and earned the program's third bid to the NCAA Championship in 2018. The Rams placed 21st in the country at the national championship. Kime helped the Rams raise more than $40,000 to fund a trip for the program to compete in the prestigious Henley Women's Regatta in England during the summer of 2018.
In her first season with the program, the Rams placed second at the 2017 A-10 Championship.
Kime spent the last two years with Philadelphia City Rowing, a program that recruits, trains, and empowers public students of Philadelphia through the sport of rowing. She was instrumental in building the girls’ program, coaching the Junior 8+ to a fourth-place finish at Stotesbury Cup and the Varsity 4+ to a sixth-place finish at City Championships. She was later elevated to coach the boys’ program as well.
In addition to working at the Junior level, Kime was the Masters Coach for Cooper Rowing Club, and worked to transform the club into a competitive and fun program.
A four-year member of the Marietta College women’s rowing team, Kime captained the team to its first team bid to NCAA Championship in her sophomore year. Kime earned a bachelor’s degree Environmental Science and a minor in Leadership Studies in 2014.
