National Championships and beyond.... (Photos added)

BOYS FOUR ARE NATIONAL CHAMPIONS
Alex Jones, Sam Knight, Liam Maloney and James Capel, rowing as a composite with St Georges College, won the gold medal in J16 coxless fours at the National Championships. The crew qualified fastest from the heats and then dominated the final, being more than two lengths clear of the field by 500m and holding a commanding lead through to the finish.
The girls J16 four of Catherine Bawtree, Kat Tviet, Julia Clarke, Joanna Fish, and cox Holly Jones did very well to qualify for the final and finish 5th overall
