Seven wins at Marlow Spring and four at Junior Interregional (PHOTOS ADDED)

Our 11 crews racing at Marlow produced an amazing 7 wins including 3 in a row from the WJ17 double (Holly Jones & Sam Ball), WJ16's (Holly Stead & Hannah Paremain) and WJ15's (Sophie Thean & Katie Dent). The girls J13 quad of Nina & Katie Giambrone, Megan Houska and Tilly Catlin, coxed by Millie Wills maintained their unbeaten run this year with a convincing win.

In the boys J14 double, Alexi Buckingham steered a brilliant course with Ross Jones and timed their finishing push to perfection as they came from a length down in the last 200m to win by a canvas!

Both Sam Wilson, racing his single today, and the Masters double will be targeting National medals later in the season and won very comfortably here.

JUNIOR QUAD WIN WALLINGFORD

The junior quad of Sam Knight, Harry Lonergan, Elliot Tarrant and Oliver Knight covincingly won their event at Wallingford Regatta, beating Leander: Zimbabwe's national crew; and Borlase (winners of the Natuonal Junior Sculling Head along the way. Their time would have put them well up in Elite quads too. The J16 quad were denied their chance of winning too, when the afternoon events were cancelled due to high winds.

FOUR GOLDS AT JUNIOR INTER-REGIONAL CHAMPS

Our depth at boys J16 level is incredible, and bodes well for the next two years at junior level. Callum, Harry, Elliot and Andy comfortably won the National Junior Sculling Head. Then joined by Oli Knight and Sam Mottram the squad won an amazing four gold medals at the Junior Inter-Regional Regatta at Nottingham: J16 quads, doubles and singles and J15 singles!

The girls J15 double of Katie Dent and Sophie Thean had a brilliant debut race to miss out on an Inter-regionals medal in a photofinish. James Williamson also just missed a medal in his first championship race in the J14 single, and the girls J16 double of Holly and Natalie came 6th.

Overall, the Walton crews put in a fantastic set of performances which helped the Thames Downriver team win the overall boys trophy, while the girls came third out of the 12 British regions.
