Gloucester High School rowers Kristen Hickman, Elizabeth Keane, Kendall Worland and Elaina Arsenovic, along with coxswain Matt Hendrix, took fifth place in the Stotesbury Cup Regatta in Philadelphia last weekend.

The Gloucester crew, competing with 52 other entries in the women’s senior four event, made it out of time trials along with 18 other competitors. In their semifinal, the four were in third place most of the race but sprinted in front of the grandstands into qualifying second place to make the final by .6 of a second.
