Chase Shepley, a soon-to-be senior at Crystal Lake Central, was a part of the United States Junior National High Performance Rowing Team that won a gold medal at the International Regatta in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Shepley rowed as part of the women's 8 boat, winning gold with a time of 6:27.26 over second-place Canada. Mexico also competed in this year's event. The 17-year-old rower had a very successful year, joining the Chicago Rowing Foundation last fall.
