The Men’s Senior Quad started Skyline’s medal count with a third place BRONZE finish. What a way to wrap up their senior year!

The Men’s Junior Quad continued the spectacular showing with a second place SILVER finish, only 1.3 seconds behind the winner.

The Men’s Senior Lightweight Quad established themselves as NATIONAL CHAMPIONS with their GOLD medals, finishing a full 7 seconds ahead of the second place boat.
