Four Locust Valley High School Juniors have qualified to compete at the U.S. Rowing Youth National Championship.

Finishing in second place at the New York State Scholastic Championships were Gabrielle Dell’Aquilo and Micailah Donner as part of a Varsity Womens 4+ boat, with Francesca Maida as coxswain.

A Varsity Womens Double rowed by Emma Gugerty and Gabrielle Dell’Aquilo placed second in the same competition. The girls compete through Sagamore Rowing Club, a composite club featuring rowers from several area high schools. First- and second-place boats at the state regatta automatically received bids to the national championship, where teams from every region of the U.S. will compete.

Congratulations and good luck at the championships in Oak Ridge, Tenn.  June 8th – 10th!
