Peter Lee and Patrick Schroedl, both students at Mercer Island High School, helped the boat cross the line .5 seconds ahead of Everett Rowing to take the win.
The team will go on to compete in the Northwest Regional Rowing Championships in Vancouver, Wash., May 20-22.
The Mt. Baker and Everett teams have shared first and second place finishes throughout the seasons.
