Gloucester High School rowers Casey Martin, Bailey Hamilton, Mackenzie Marbain and Ashleigh Dough, along with coxswain Autumn Rose, were the only GHS medal winners at the Virginia Scholastic Rowing Championships last weekend at Occoquan.
Competing in the first four, the girls won their first heat in 5:58 and their semifinal in 5:46 before posting a time of 5:36 to take second place and silver medals in the final.
