Eureka High School principal Rick Jordan made sure two Humboldt Bay Junior rowers didn’t miss their graduation even if they were hundreds of miles away.

 

Amanda Morettini and Maria Martinelli were both competing at the Junior Rowing Nationals in Sacramento. So Jordan drove to the event to graduate the two Eureka seniors in a special ceremony.

 

Then on Sunday, the girls finished second in the finals making them the eighth fastest lightweight double.
