St. Joseph senior Jillian Tunnicliff recently signed to row at the University of Michigan. Tunnicliff returned to St. Joseph for her senior year after spending two years living in Hong Kong.

Jillian Tunnicliff is always out to seek a new experience, whether through sports, the outdoors or travel.

Tunnicliff, a senior at St. Joseph, participates in cross country and track as a middle distance runner for the Bears, but she’ll be continuing her academic and athletic career in a different sport next fall: rowing.
