The Sacred Heart College rowers have been building all season for the North Island Champs which took place over the weekend. Although the regatta was interrupted by bad weather which caused some of the races to be scrapped, we ended up in a total of eight A Finals and five B Finals.
We had two medalling crews; Under 16 Coxed Four gained a SILVER Medal and the Under 18 Novice Coxed Eight gained a SILVER Medal.
The crews are U16 Four; George Hyslop, Henry Hyslop, Sean Paget and Tom Newton. The coxswain was Ben Tyson.
The U18 Novice Eight was; George Grbich, Isaac Screen, Malkome Vaka, Patrick Spencer, Vedran Ilich, Jared August, Tom Henderson and Quinn O’Brien. The coxswain was Massimo Nicholas.
We now regroup for the Nationals in two weeks and try to improve on the five 4ths we gained over the weekend in the A Finals to medal at more events at the national level.
