KINGSTON, R.I. - Rhode Island women's rowing head coach Shelagh Donohoe coached Team USA's LTA 4+ boat to the silver medal at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio Sunday morning.

The American boat of Jaclyn Smith, Dorian Weber, Zac Burns, Dani Hansen and coxswain Jenny Sichel finished in a time of 3:21.65, behind only the gold medal boat from Great Britain, which posted a time of 3:25.08 on the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas race course.

This is the fourth time in her career Donohoe has been part of a medal-winning team for the United States. She was a silver medalist for Team USA at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics in the women's straight 4 (coxless) event. Donohoe also has two world championship medals as a rower to her credit.

At Rhode Island, Donohoe has coached the Rams to five Atlantic 10 championships and two appearances in the NCAA Championship.
