On the weekend of the 3rd and 4th of February, SGHS rowers Caleb Barker, Lex Bagster, Patrick Reilly and Scott Rose competed in the Tweed Heads Rowing Club Regatta and the Northern Rivers Rowing Association Age Championships. All rowers performed well on the Saturday, with Lex and Scott achieving second place in the Men’s Masters Handicap Pair and third place in the Men’s Open Double Scull.
Caleb placed second in the Men’s Open Single Scull and all four boys raced together in the Men’s Open Quad Scull, also placing second. The effort continued on Sunday, seeing Caleb combine with a Coffs Harbour rower to place second in the Men’s Under 19 Double Scull. He also took out first place in the Men’s Under 19 Single Scull. Congratulations to all rowers and thank you to all the parents who helped make it possible. In late February our rowing team will head to Sydney for the CHS State regatta. The SRC has offered sponsorship toward this effort. We wish them every success.
