LRHS seniors Sydney Wright and Emma Stock raced their last state race and both brought home the gold in their events. Juniors Sophia Lopez, Isis Madden, and Dominic Romano also placed.

Wright said, “We got our trophy back, and I can’t wait to see it on the trophy table for another year.”

Other Sarasota crew rowers such as sophomores Keely Radloff, Ava Vandroff, Ruchi Williams, Alexis Niguib and freshmen Hailey Sounders and Grant Shmidt, either medaled or contributed to the points race.

At the end of the day all the teams points were tallied up, and for the seventh year in a row Sarasota Crew took home not only the overall points trophy, but also the girls and boys overall points trophies as well.
