Leading the team to their outstanding finish was cox-Grace Horwitz, stroke-Kelly Harrison, 7-Vanessa Viadero, 6-Rebekah Evans, 5-Brielle Bowers, 4-Jaimee Lampard, 3-Katie Rogers, 2-Summerlin Knipe, and bow-Nicki Marek.

In the Varsity 4+ competition (cox – Kadi Karam, stroke – Brianne Misner, 3-Renee Forcier, 2-Courtney Greene, bow-Helene Pierre), Barry finished fourth in their heat on Friday with a time of 07:47.19.
