Paige Cooper - Year 8 Galen Catholic College
Megan Vogel - Year 10 Corowa High School
Amy Underwood - Year 11 Geelong Grammar
Events were from year 9 to open grade over 1000 metres.
Paige begin the day competing in the year 9 division - She won her heat by 3 lengths and then won the Silver medal in the final.
Megan and Paige then both competed in Year 10 division, Megan won her heat with a convincing win and Paige also went on to win her heat with a confidence building win over much older girls. In the final Megan recorded a great win with Paige coming in third to receive the Bronze medal.
Megan and Amy both then competed in the open division. Megan had a very tough heat coming up against the Australian Junior Representative from the World Championships, but did very well and still came in 2nd place getting her a place in the B final, whilst Amy also drew a tough draw against some very high standard rowers and finished in 4th position missing out on a final bout. Megan then rowed the B final for the open division and came 2nd.
Great effort by all the girls.
Not such a great effort by the vehicles! Emergency vehicles had to be sent down to rescue 2 of the rowers & parents & coach after a vehicle malfunction. Made it an extra long day to be sure.
