Amazing results at inaugural All Schools Regatta

Last Saturday our rowers made the trek to Champion Lakes for the first ever All Schools Regatta. A Rowing WA initiative to extend rowing beyond the traditional PSA and IGSSA schools, our outstanding results proved John XXIII College will be the club to beat in this new competition.

Our squad of eighteen girls and boys competed in ten events and took out first place in seven of those - an amazing effort that shows our continued focus on small boat racing is reaping great rewards.

Our victorious crews were:

Mixed open quad - Toby Mace, Jack Pondevie, Enyana Reynolds, Arabelle O'Rourke, Antony Pearce (Cox)

Womens' U16 quad - Claire Knight, Sophie Minissale, Rosheen Richards, Kate Foster, Nuala Boog (Cox)

Mens' U15 quad - Liam Gassner, Evan McAuliffe, Luke Green, Ross Mace, Claire Knight (Cox)

Womens' Open single Arabelle O'Rourke

Womens' U16 single Claire Knight

Mens' U15 single (Div.1) Evan McAuliffe

Mens' U15 single (Div. 2) David Wishaw

It was the first row for our Year 8 girls who performed valiantly in their quad, gaining third place despite an oar malfunction that meant only three people were rowing!

This Saturday we are back to the IGSSA competition, with JTC playing host at Canning Bridge, 8:30 to 11:30am. It's forecast to be a beautiful day and we'd love to have lots of supporters there to cheer our girls on. Hope to see you there!
