Caiola’s boat had a time of 6:23.036, while Creutz and McLean’s came in at 6:01.857.

“This was my third states, being able to have that experience and lead the younger girls was awesome,” McLean said. “I’m so proud of our team and how far we’ve come.”

City Island Rowing also had two boats place second—U17 8-plus and U16 4-plus—qualifying them for the youth nationals in Sarasota, Florida, later this year.
