Woodbridge:     13th,   5:21.36     semi: 5:09.19

O’Connell:           23rd,   5:31.79    semi: N/A

Fairfax:                16th,    5:25.23   semi:  5:18.74

McLean:               8th,     5:18.45    semi:  5:11.81

Gloucester:         9th,    5:19.17     semi:  5:05.18

TC Williams:      12th,   5:20.96    semi:  5:06.19
