"We are very pleased to have Bee and Joyce join the Gopher Rowing family," Davis said. "They are high-character, hard-working and talented individuals and we are confident they will thrive over the course of their collegiate careers."

Lovick attended high school at Methodist Ladies College in Melbourne, where she was coached by Tim Dolphin. She graduated high school in November and plans to major in political science or global studies upon her arrival at Minnesota.

Jollands attended high school at Scotch College Adelaide, where she was coached by Denis Perry. She graduated high school in November and plans to major in earth sciences as a Gopher.

During her rowing career, Jollands earned the Robert Bowler Prize as the most improved rower for the 2012-13 season, the 2013 Rowers' Rower Award and is a member of the South Australian Sport Institute Junior Target Squad.

Academically, Jollands was honored with the Peter Allen English Prize in 2012, while earning academic letters in 2011-12 and academic colours in 2012-13.
