PLC/Kings Regatta

Gloomy weather, but bright smiles for our successful rowers

Gloomy weather, but bright smiles for our successful rowers

By Ethan Toscan, Rowing Captain

The PLC/Kings Regatta was held on Saturday 13 February at the Sydney International Rowing Centre.  Fifty Radford rowers competed amongst 1542 school students from 41 different schools around ACT and NSW. Our rowers competed in a total of 21 events, racking up enough points to come second in the point score for the regatta, which was an excellent result. 

Spirits were high, despite the rainAs the rain set in, this did not stop the Radford rowers competing hard and coming down the course fast. At the end of the regatta, Radford came away with 20 podium finishes with 5 bronze, 9 silver and 6 gold medals.

The final two races of the day were the inaugural Schoolboy and Schoolgirl Representative Eights. The ACT Schoolboy Representative Eight consisted of 7 Radford boys out of the 9 athletes selected (including cox) required to row the boat. The Radford athletes were Ben Heatley, Sam Roberts, William Gregory, Angus Walker, Ethan Toscan, Hamish Roberts and Jake Schemen-Rogers. This crew rowed amazingly well to secure 2nd place, having only trained as a crew once prior to the race.

All the rowers who came to the regatta did a fantastic job in competing, and showed that their hard work has been paying off, as seen in a large medal tally and outstanding performances from each and every crew.

‘Thank you’ to Ms Spencer, our coaches and parent volunteers/supporters for making the weekend happen and keeping our stomachs full.
