VUHS rowers do well at big meet
HULL, Mass. — Teams from the Vergennes Union High School rowing club posted top finishes on Nov. 19 at the Icebreaker New England Youth Rowing Championships in Hull, Mass., an event that drew 200 high school and middle school rowers on teams from as far away as New York City.
Earning the best result was the VUHS middle school team of Emily Jackson, Olivia Lorrain, Brook Beamish, Shawn Richards, Gabe Quinto and Devon Coleman, which became the first Vermont middle school team to win first place in the event’s middle school competition.
The VUHS club’s other two teams each settled for second place. In the top class, the Experienced Division, VUHS finished just behind Station, Maine, in the round-robing competition. The rowers on that team were Emily Weber, Rachel Clark, Bailey Dieterle, Levi Baldwin, Josh Newton, Malcolm Donovan-Cook and Nick LaFleche.
The VUHS Intermediate Division team also took second. Its members were Jacob LaFleche, Orion Cabot, Reggie Grady, Ellie Martin, Kobe Lee and Camden Dieterle.
