DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke junior Caroline Kiritsy stands at just 5-foot-2, but she can shout loud enough to clear the geese off Lake Michie.

Kiritsy is the coxswain of Duke's varsity eight and, despite her stature, is a pro at motivating the eight rowers who power the Blue Devils' top boat. Keeping the boat in sync, on pace and in line are her responsibility, not to mention coming up with fresh material to incite her crew when they've spent all their energy.

Check out the attached video to hear more about Kiritsy's and the other Duke coxswains' roles in the Duke rowing program.
