The Boston Latin School girls' crew team competed in the 48th annual Head of the Charles Regatta on Sunday morning.
Even though the team finished the race second to last, they still had a great time at the world's largest two-day regatta, according to third year coach Shayne Rowan.
"The race is done and though we finished at the back of the pack with a time of 23:50, the girls had a great time and said so many people were cheering for them," Rowan said via email. "Teresa Frappaolo said she couldn't stop smiling the whole time. Even though our spring season is far off, they can't wait.
"This group of seniors will be so hard to say goodbye to and their positive attitudes make it such a pleasure to coach them."
