Success for Latymer rowers

The weather threw some challenging conditions at rowers competing in Thursday’s Schools’ Head race. Strong winds meant the course had to be shortened to the Bandstand in Dukes Meadows.

Undeterred, our teams braved the elements with great results as follows:

Boys

J18 1st 8+ 2nd

J16 1st 8+ 4th

J15 Ch8+ 1st

J15 2nd 8+ 2nd

Girls

WJ16 Ch8+ 2nd

WJ15 Ch8+ 1st

The next day our rowers moved camp to Dorney Lake to race at the National Junior Sculling Head. Our crews did their school proud, medalling in six races and winning in four. The Year 9 girls A boat achieved the quickest time on record for their event. The results were as follows:
