Juniors win at Shrewsbury

Liam Moakes 11th May, 2017

A SMALL Stratford Boat Club contingent impressed at Pengwern Boat Club’s annual Shrewsbury Regatta on Saturday.

Racing on the River Severn over 1,000 metres, Emily Barratt and Christine Goodwin competing in the women’s novice double sculls raced well and smoothly but were just overhauled by a crew from North Staffordshire Rowing Club.

The WJ15 coxed quadruple sculling crew of Katie Phillips, Katie Wellstead, Khloe Curnock and Emily Browne, expertly coxed by Matilda Watts, sculled superbly over three races to convincingly beat The Grange School (Northwich), Stourport Boat Club and then Monmouth Comprehensive School to win the event.

Jane Connolly, rowing at masters level in her single scull, demonstrated super sculling skills but in the end was narrowly defeated by a lady from Burton Leander Rowing Club.

Autumn Keil raced an athlete from Trent Rowing Club in the WJ15 single sculls. After a fascinating and valiant tussle over most of the course, Trent only just defeated Stratford.
