Lisa is the long-time Head Coach at the Winsor School with multiple deep ties to the rowing community, particularly in Boston. Renowned as both a rower in her own right as well as a coach, she brings a wealth of knowledge from all aspects of the sport. In her career as an athlete, Stone (née Hansen) distinguished herself in a time when women’s rowing was dominated by countries from Eastern Europe. As the stroke of the USA Women’s 2x, she and her doubles partner, current Radcliffe Head Coach and fellow CRS coach (see below) Liz O’Leary, won a bronze medal at both the 1977 and 1978 World Championships. Stone also competed at the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal and the 1975 World Championships in the Women’s Coxed Quad for the USA. As a coach, Stone got her start serving as the Assistant Coach at Radcliffe (Harvard University) from 1980 - 1983 before assuming the Head Coach role from 1983 to 1986. She later moved on to coach at The Winsor School and has developed the program into one of the premier girls’ rowing programs in the country with her crews earning many NEIRA Championships along the way. One obvious standout from her Winsor squads is her daughter, Gevvie, who followed her mother’s lead and represented the USA in the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games as the Women’s 1x.
