Returning to Hawk Hill as an assistant coach in 2018-19 is former SJU standout Delaney McGuire '16.

A four-year letterwinner at Saint Joseph's from 2012-16, McGuire served as team captain as a senior and earned Atlantic 10 All-Conference First Team accolades. Among the highlights as a Hawk, she was a member of Varsity 8 that won the Petite Final at the 2016 Dad Vail Regatta, the Petite Final at the 2016 Murphy Cup and the Petite Final at the 2015 Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta. Recipient of the team's Vasquez Award, McGuire graduated with a bachelor's degree in art education.

Following graduation, McGuire joined the staff at Eastern Michigan as a graduate assistant. After serving in the role for nearly two seasons, she was elevated to full-time assistant in 2018 and oversaw recruiting and development. 

In 2018-19, McGuire helped the Freshman 8 claim gold at the Dad Vail Championship, led the Novice 8 finish program-best fifth at the Head of the Hooch and guided the Novice/3V8 to victory at the Cooper Invitational Regatta. Additionally, under McGuire's guidance, the Novice set a new record for 2K time and placed a student-athlete on EMU's all-time Novice 6K record board, while the 2019 recruiting class ranked the fastest in program history.

At the 2019 CAA Championships, McGuire's assistance led the Novice 8 to a third place finish, while she also helped coach the Second Varsity 8 to a second place finish. 

Earning a master's degree in sports management from Eastern Michigan, McGuire continued her rowing career on the water at EMU as she earned a spot on the United States rowing team that competed in the 2018 World University Championships in Shanghai, China, and finished 11th in the Lightweight Double Sculls.
