THIRTY King’s Ely students from Years 9 to 13 competed in the Cambridge Small Boats Head on Saturday, September 30th.
The course is one of the most challenging in the country as it includes three very sharp and fast corners that students need to navigate whilst, in many cases, overtaking crews.
There were some really great performances from our students and it was especially pleasing to see five Year 9 double sculls attacking the course.
King’s Ely finished the day with fastest crews in the following events:
WJ 14 2x – Freja Barnham and Elizabeth Thomson
WJ 15 1x – Georgia Chapman
J17 1x – Alex Millard
WJ17 2x – Rebecca Garrett and Alice Dickens
WJ18 1x – Emily Moore
WJ18 2x – Rebecca Garrett and Emily Moore
J18 2x – Alex Millard and Will White (fastest Junior crew of the day)
In addition to the above winners, King’s Ely rowers also secured minor placings (2nd/3rd) in an additional seven categories.
