GB Rowing Team Selection

Amy (S5) has been selected to row in the Junior Girls Four at the Munich International Junior Regatta, as part of the GB Rowing U19 squad.

Scottish Rowing has commented:

“The GB Rowing Team Under 19 Regatta took place on Sunday 24 April at Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham, with Scotland’s junior rowers excelling despite the challenging circumstances.

A heavy tail wind on the day created difficult rowing conditions however the Scottish athletes were not put off recording strong performances across three of the four boat classes.  The conditions forced a change to the published race format with a 1900 metre time trial seeding crews into side-by-side finals raced over 1000 metres.

In second place in the time trial was Amy from George Heriot’s School (with her partner from Headington School), whilst a George Heriot’s School / George Watson’s College composite crew of Isla B and Isla W finished 5th.  Morven from Glasgow Academy finished 6th out of the 17 junior women’s pairs with her partner from Tideway Scullers School.  Sarah from George Heriot’s School and her partner from Emanuel School were 16th.

Following the Spring Assessments last month, four Scottish junior rowers have been selected to represent Great Britain at the upcoming Munich International Junior Regatta (7-8 May).  Zoe from ASRA will race in the junior women’s pair whilst her teammate Maisie is part of the junior women’s four along with Amy from George Heriot’s School.”


Good luck to Amy and we can’t wait to follow her progress.
