Newfoundland and Labrador rowers had a shot at four medals Thursday, but came up short, leaving this province still without a medal after five days of competition at the 2009 Canada Summer Games.

The best the province could manage was a pair of fifth-place finishes, in men's lightweight fours (Chris Clark, Josh Sutton, Paul Hussey, Tyler Young) and women's eights (cox Karen Brodie, stroke Jane Brodie, Stephanie Davis, Allison Delong, Alyssa Devereaux, Hilary Sinclair, Holly Whelan, Amanda Ryan, bow Shannon Driscoll).

Devereaux and Jane Brodie were sixth in the women's pair and Brent Payne and Mark Perry were sixth in men's pair.

Ben Colbourne won the two-boat men's singles scull consolation final.

Despite finishing out the medals, Devereaux was pleased with the race for the women's eights.

"We had a good start, the whole body of race was good and our stroke rate was never as high as it was," she said. "We took it to another level, pushed ourselves the most we ever have.

"We just weren't as fast as everyone else."
