Published on 09/05/18

A successful month of rowing for Senior School students Priya and Liberty representing the East of England.

Over the easter break, promising young rowers Priya and Liberty attended a week long intensive training course at the new Cambridge University Boathouse at Ely, and it definitely seems to be paying off!

Since the training camp the girls have competed in three regattas.

On Saturday 21 April the girls represented the East of England at the Junior Inter-regional Rowing Regatta at the National Watersports Centre in Nottingham. After a great performance, they were placed in the top 10 in the UK in their catagory, the Junior Women 15 and under double sculls.
