Baldwin also saw strong results from Jasmine Greytok (bow) and Carolina Kiser (stroke) in the varsity double, who posted a time of 5:23.36 to secure a second place in their event, in a photo finish that left them just 0.29 seconds shy of Germantown Friends School’s first-place time.
The junior varsity quad of (Julia Love bow, Tara McMahon 2, Jane Bai 3, and Hailey Barnett stroke) also made a strong showing, winning their flight with a time of 5:04 and placing third out of the nine boats in the event.
JV doubles (Helen Ji bow, Jess Shen stroke; Juliet Paiva bow, Gabrielle Alston stroke) and the second varsity double (Maya Bindra bow, Sanjana Dixit stroke) faced challenging competition at this week’s races. Racing in the open-weight JV category rather than the lightweight double, Ji and Shen finished in 6:28.1, taking about 20 seconds off last week’s time but still falling short of a podium finish.
