WEST END — For the first time in recent memory, a local high school has won the Allstate Sugar Bowl Great Oaks Regatta. The team from Isidore Newman School won their division in the preliminary round and rolled on to overall victory in the final round. Despite winning six of eight races in the finals, the gritty Greenies had to stage a comeback from a mid-series stumble, retaking the lead in the very last race. The Newman team is Emily Alfortish, Ellie Menszer, Nick Combe, Thomas Kerrigan, and Jonathan Schrantz (not pictured). Click on photo for results.
