TWO GOLDS AND A BRONZE AT BRITISH CHAMPIONSHIPS

The long journey to Strathclyde Park, Glasgow was rewarded for Walton with some fantastic results. Both our winning Nat Schools crews confirmed their dominance at National level. The J14 double of Harry Gaywood and Oli Knight sculled a very mature race, being completely unfazed by crews that were 3 lengths ahead at half-way. They kept to their race plan and came through the field to win by clear water in a very quick time.

The J15 coxed quad of Andrew Bedford, Harry Lonergan (TSS), Elliot Tarrant, Oli Knight and cox Ross Jones absolutely blitzed their event, and took 5 seconds of the Championship record to win in 6.47.

The seniors were not to be outdone either, with the Elite Lwt Quad of Neil West, Stuart West, Sam Wilson and Sam Lee-Gill getting a bronze, just half a second down in 6.23

There were very creditable 4th places for Sam Ball and Julia Clarke in Women's Junior Pairs and for Holly Jones, Sophie Walker, Hannah Traylen and Sarah Hunt in Women's Elite Lwt Quads. Both these crews will be back for medals next year.
