Competing against the top rowing programs in the country, Gunston was represented in the boy’s and girl’s varsity four-plus categories.

Gunston’s boy’s varsity four-plus reached a milestone this year by breaking out of the first round of racing for the first time in this event in program history. Later in the day the crew went on to compete in the repechage — second chance race — and placed sixth.
